Mobsters is a 1991 crime-drama film detailing the creation of the National Crime Syndicate/The Commission. Set in New York City during the prohibition era, it is a semi-fictitious account of the rise of Charles "Lucky" Luciano, Meyer Lansky, Frank Costello and Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel. The film focuses primarily on Luciano and Lansky as they rise from petty criminals and bootleggers to push aside the old guard of the Mafia and eventually establish The Commission, which set up the New York Mafia into five separate families.Christian Slater (Luciano), Patrick Dempsey (Lansky), Richard Grieco (Siegel), and Costas Mandylor (Costello) star as the eponymous protagonists; the supporting cast includes F. Murray Abraham as Arnold Rothstein, Anthony Quinn as Joe Masseria, Michael Gambon as Salvatore Maranzano (in the movie he is curiously called Salvatore "Faranzano"), Chris Penn, and Lara Flynn Boyle as a Flapper/Moll created largely to provide the requisite love interest demanded in typical Hollywood films.
