The Brothers Rico

Former Mafia bookkeeper Eddie Rico (Richard Conte) has decided to go straight and lives with his wife in Florida, where they plan to adopt a child. However, his brothers, Johnny (James Darren) and Gino (Paul Picerni), still work for his ex-boss, Sid Kubik (Larry Gates) -- and, when Eddie finds out their lives are in danger, he tries to re-establish his connection to the world he thought he had left behind. But when one of his brothers is killed, Eddie realizes that he may be next.
