Chicago Confidential

Uploaded by OAKPARKVIDEO on Dec 12, 2011

"Title comes from a Chicago trashy 'expose' book written by Jack Lait and Lee Mortimer. The book has nothing to do with the movie which is your standard cops, gangsters and crooked union leaders fare. All in all it's worth a look."

Starring Brian Keith as Dist. Atty. Jim Fremont.

"It was published in 1950, and probably seemed kind of dated even then, with its 'hurly-burly, rough-and-tumble, guns-and-girls' neon noir sensibility," Whet Moser wrote for Chicago magazine in July when he offered it up as the Historical Best of Chicago.

The glorious cover. You can see the back too here.
