Brothers against Brothers: The Civella-Spero War

In this documentary film, Gary Jenkins, former Kansas City Police Intelligence Unit Detective, host, and producer of the popular mafia podcast Gangland Wire, guides the viewer on a journey inside a Kansas City mob war. Brothers Nick and Carl “Cork” Civella ruled Kansas City’s la Cosa Nostra family since 1957. In the 1960s, four brothers named Nick, Mike, Joe, and Carl Spero started careers as professional criminals. The established Civella crime family thought of these brothers as mavericks. Starting with the gangland-style murder of the eldest brother, Nick Spero, this mob war rages for a decade until a powerful bomb killed the last brother standing in 1984.

Filmmaker Gary Jenkins was a Kansas City Police Detective in the 1970s. He was assigned to a task force dedicated to bringing down the La Cosa Nostra family in Kansas City, Missouri. After retirement, Gary started making documentary films. In this feature-length documentary Gary interviews retired F.B.I. agents, Police officers, Star reporters, and other witnesses to the events that led to the demise of the Civella Family. Gary was able to access the F.B.I. archives and recovered over 100 of the actual audiotapes from the many wiretaps and secret microphones installed by the feds during this investigation. The viewer will hear the voice of the boss, Nick Civella, discuss mob problems and plans with underboss Carl “Tuffy” DeLuna, Consigliere Carl “Cork” Civella and other mob underlings. Hear Chicago Outfit Capo Joseph “Joey the Clown” Lombardo tells casino owner, Morris Shenker, that if he wants to live to age 73, he better pay up.
