Underworld is a classic 1927 Silent Movie directed by Josef von Sternberg that marks the first ever gangster movie.

Renown screenwriter, Ben Hecht, would receive the first Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for this film.

Not to be confused with the similarly titled vampire/werewolf film franchise Underworld.
