Noted for Edward G. Robinson's breakthrough performance, this gangster classic centers on Rico "Little Caesar" Bandelli (Robinson), who stages an all-out coup to become mob boss. After moving to the city, Rico and pal Joe (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) join Sam Vettori's (Stanley Fields) gang. Rico rises quickly through the ranks, and his hit list expands -- but just when Rico needs his friend the most, Joe wants out. Glenda Farrell also stars.
