        You had issued an earlier version of this movie in DVD format: a much inferior product that does not even fill the screen on a large screen tv.
        Exactly the same DVD box/case as your new issue, but the new one is a much improved transfer and product.

        "The Purple Gang" takes no prisoners....

            Comments about Purple Gang, The:

            "The Purple Gang" is a no-holds-barred film noir from AA 1959. The film takes place over several years during prohibition in Detroit. Barry Sullivan plays tough cop in charge of bringing down the murderous "Purple Gang" led by claustrophobic mamas-boy Robert Blake. All the principals are excellent, but Blake steals the show with his spot-on portrayal of baby-faced pure evil. Frank McDonald directs at a fast clip and Paul Dunlap provides an atmospheric period musical score. THe WB Archive has done it again with the release of this totally unknown thriller from Allied Artists. "The Purple Gang" belongs in every film-noir lover's library!
