Summary
"Francis Phelan becomes a hobo after accidentally killing his son, but when he returns 22 years later, he cannot reunite his family." "...'Legs' brilliantly evokes the flamboyant career of the legendary gangster Jack "Legs" Diamond, who was finally murdered in Albany. Through the equivocal eyes of Diamond's attorney, Marcus Gorman (who scraps a promising political career for the more elemental excitement of the criminal underworld), we watch as Legs and his showgirl mistress, Kiki Roberts, blaze their gaudy trail across the tabloid pages of the 1920s and the 1930s. Diamond and his gangster entourage emerge as emblematic figures from an era of American innocence -- and corruption."
