The St. Valentine's Day MassacreThe St Valentine's Day MassacreThe St. Valentine's Day Massacre'' (film)
Valentine's Day Massacre was not, as might be guessed, inspired by the 1959-63 ABC TV series, The Untouchables, but is one of many motion pictures adapted from a CBS Playhouse 90 episode; Seven Against The Wall, broadcast on Playhouse 90 in December 1958, was also written by Harold Browne and featured actors Milton Frome, Celia Lovsky and Frank Silvera in the same roles that they play in the film. To make certain the film would have the look of a gangster film, Roger Corman shot the film at the Desilu studios and used other sections of the back lot for different locales of Chicago.

Be CoolGold CoastLeonard, Elmore
Elmore John Leonard Jr. (October 11, 1925 – August 20, 2013) was an American novelist, short story writer, and screenwriter. His earliest novels, published in the 1950s, were Westerns, but he went on to specialize in crime fiction and suspense thrillers, many of which have been adapted into motion pictures.
In 1957, he wrote, produced, and directed an episode of the anthology series Playhouse 90 entitled "Without Incident", which starred Errol Flynn. In 1959, he became producer and occasional writer and director for the series Rawhide starring Eric Fleming and Clint Eastwood. He also served briefly as producer or executive producer for three other western series, Gunslinger, The Iron Horse with Dale Robertson and The Virginian with James Drury. He returned to film as the writer of Day of the Evil Gun (1968), featuring Glenn Ford, and as the writer and director of Charro! (1969) starring Elvis Presley.
John Frankenheimer was initially set to direct, but stepped down just before his death. He was replaced by Paul Schrader, who aimed for a psychological film and delivered what he described as "footage without any of the bloody violence the backers had wanted." The producers were unsatisfied with the completed film Schrader had presented them and fired him, replacing him with Harlin and hiring screenwriter Alexi Hawley to retool the previous script. Harlin re-filmed most of the film, with some new characters added and others deleted. The character of Father Francis, originally played by Gabriel Mann, had to be recast with D'Arcy because Mann had a scheduling conflict.
