1931: Once Upon a Time in New York (1974)
Any 1972 film starring Richard Conte was like as not produced in Italy. Despite its title, 1931: Once Upon a Time in New York is no exception to this rule. Conte and Adolfo Celi play rival Chicago gangsters, fighting tooth and tommy-gun over territorial rights. Featured in the cast are gravel-voiced Lionel Stander and easily excitable Irene Papas.
