It tells the tale of a small-time but ambitious criminal, who moves to Chicago and joins its underworld. Soon he becomes the fearless leader of gangsters, known as Little Caesar.
Little Caesar achieves epic stature thanks to Edward G. Robinson’s volcanic charisma, forging a template for the big-screen mobster archetype that’s yet to be surpassed.
