“Mob Town” is inspired by an ill-fated Mafia summit meeting in 1957 in the small town of Apalachin, New York. State Trooper Edgar Croswell, (David Arquette), became suspicious that mobsters were gathering at the rural estate of Joseph Barbara (Abeckaser). Croswell called in reinforcements and set up a roadblock. The mobsters, including prominent New York bosses Vito Genovese, Carlo Gambino, Joe Profaci and Joe Bonanno panicked, while trying to flee the scene. The event revealed once and for all that the Mafia existed in America, forcing once-skeptical FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover to ramp up his agency’s efforts to fight organized crime.
