South Philly Mobsters 'Uncle Joe', 'The Gentle Don' To Hit Big Screen

Tommy Rowan at Philly.com offers a piece on the upcoming documentary on organized crime that features prominently the South Philly Cosa Nostra crime family.  

With real-life South Philly characters "Uncle Joe" Ligambi, "Skinny Joey" Merlino and Angelo "The Gentle Don" Bruno peppering Tigre Hill's new documentary on organized crime, it's bound to be a hit.
Last week the "Shame of a City" and "Barrel of a Gun" director released the trailer for his latest film, "The Corrupt and The Dead."
Hill described the forthcoming documentary as focusing on the detrimental effect of organized crime on society, as well as its impact on the economies of its host cities. The film covers the mob's influence in cities across the country, but takes heavily from the mob's impact on Hill's native city of Philadelphia.
