The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre
Roger Corman takes us behind the scenes on one of his rare big studio projects, a detailed and largely accurate account of the 1929 mass murder of Bugs Moran’s Northside Gang in a Chicago garage. George Segal plays the ill-fated, not to mention henpecked, Frank Gusenberg. Paul Frees narrates as the voice of doom, chronicling the dark fates of various luckless pawns played by seemingly every character actor in town. TV writer and former Amazing Stories editor Howard Browne expanded this from his 1958 Playhouse 90 broadcast “Seven Against the Wall.”
