THE RISE AND FALL OF LEGS DIAMOND

Directed by Budd Boetticher
United States, 1960
Crime, History

Synopsis

This ferocious gangster biopic indulges in none of the nostalgia for the Depression or glamorisation of its anti-heroes so prevalent in most such movies. The tone is almost existential: wisely, Boetticher defines his protagonist not through psychology but through action.
