Synopsis

The film tells the story of three teenagers, based on real life gangsters Charles "Lucky" Luciano (Michael Nouri), Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel (Joe Penny) and Michael Lasker (Brian Benben) (a fictional character who was most likely modeled after Meyer Lansky), growing up in New Yorks ghettos during the early 1900s to their rise though organized crime.

Adaptation

This movie is based on an original telecast from 1981 called The Gangster Chronicles. It was a three-hour opener for the subsequent miniseries. In addition to the characters above Brian Benbens character is a fictional composite of several mobsters (here named "Michael Lasker"). While the miniseries covered nearly four decades, the opener takes us from 1907 to the Prohibition era of the 1920s. After its initial run, the entire Gangster Chronicles saga was boiled down to 121 minutes and released to videocassette as Gangster Wars.
