Capone Investment

In The Capone Investment copper Inspector Reaygo and DI6 man Wheatfield get involved in a murder and embezzlement plot that goes to the 1920’s and a huge sum of money that legendary gangster Al Capone tried to launder in the UK.

Full of strong performances from big names including a cast against type John Thaw who at the time was just about to hit major stardom in The Sweeney.

The Capone Investment has that classic 1970’s vibe even if there was a bit of a reliance for the driving scenes, of which there were many, to use back projection. The theme tune definitely didn’t suit the production though!
