There was a recent Sherlock Holmes episode of Mystery! on PBS called
something like The Red Circle, which along with the commentary might be
helpful. The story was based on the Italian-American group the Black Hand,
according to the commentary, which also mentioned approximate dates and news
(?) stories.

Dear Sir or Madam,
I am ending my studies in cinema at Bologna University, Italy.
My Thesis is about the image of Italian American Mafia in American Cinema.
I am looking for the following films of D.W. Griffith: "The cord of life",
"In little Italy", "At the altar" and also films such as, "The Black Hand",
"Little Italy", made between 1905 and 1930, which are concerned with italian
and italian american criminality.
I am unable to find these films in Italy and was hoping that you might be
able to help me.
I would also be very interested in any biographical information that you can
supply on books relevant to this argument.
I thank you in anticipation.
Domenico Ciolfi
