Nice Documentary on the 1931 Classic

Little Caesar: End of Rico, Beginning of the Antihero (2005)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Another wonderful documentary from Warner, which was released in 2005 on their DVD release of LITTLE CAESAR. Martin Scorsese, Drew Casper and Alain Silver are just a few of the famous faces who appear and give their opinions on the making of the film as well as its place in history. The documentary does a good job showing what the 1920s were like as various gangster figures were making tons of money through alcohol sales and then what happened after the stock market crashed. In regards to the film there is some discussion on how Edward G. Robinson got the role, what part Clark Gable almost had as well as issues with the censor board. There's also some talk about how the Rico character was based on Al Capone. If you're a fan of this classic 1931 film then you're going to love hearing these stories. The documentary runs just under 17-minutes so there's not a lot of time nor any great detail but I think there's enough here where fans will walk away happy. We get countless clips from the movie as well as the experts discussing an alternate ending and the current ending, which contains some very famous lines. Clips from this film as well as THE ROARING TWENTIES are featured and if you haven't seen either film it's best you see them before watching this as there are plenty of spoilers.
