 Title  Kill the Irishman
This is the story of Danny Greene, an Irish-American, whose exploits would become legend in his home town of Collinwood, a poor section of Cleveland, Ohio. The film begins with Danny at 28. He works as a longshoreman and, although a high school dropout, he is well read, smart, and knows he's capable for better things. Within two years he becomes union president -- a union connected with organized crime. At first he works with them but by the 1970s wants his own business. He had become a Robinhood-like figure. By day he gave out turkeys to the poor. By night he worked for the mob. When a business deal went wrong they put a price on his head. But he seemed charmed -- attempt after attempt failed. Violence in the streets escalated. They dubbed it the 'Danny Greene War.' When they finally got him the police apprehended his murderer, a hit man with connections to mob families on both coasts. His trial would implicate mob figures in major cities across the nation shaking the mafia to its core. Link to reviews Click picture
