Ep. 185 – Christopher & Eric’s True Crime TV Club Serves Up “Eliot Ness VS. Al Capone”

June 24, 2023

Christopher and Eric kick off the Midwest Mayhem portion of their True Crime Movie Time Summer Film Festival with an all new true crime pairing devoted to two of the most mythologized figures in the history of American organized crime. Thanks to its snarky European producers, the documentary ELIOT NESS VS. AL CAPONE offers vicious commentary about the so-called land of the free. (To our Chicago based Party People, we beg your forgiveness in advance. We don’t write the documentaries, we just serve them up.) But Eric was surprised by the film’s fresh insights into the personality of the crusading Eliot Ness while Christopher struggled to keep track of which real life figures were being captured by its overwhelming flood of archival footage. It’s all a set up for next week’s discussion of the wildly popular Brian DePalma film THE UNTOUCHABLES, a cinematic exploration of the storied clash between these two men and modern day legends.
