One of the most famous American gangsters, Al Capone, also known as "Scarface,” became the undisputed mafia boss in Chicago during the Prohibition era. Before being sent to Alcatraz Prison in 1931 from a tax evasion conviction, he had amassed a personal fortune estimated at $100 million and was responsible for countless murders.

Capone met the gangster Johnny Torrio who would become Capone’s mentor and prove the greatest influence on Capone’s life. Torrio taught Capone the importance of maintaining a respectable front, while running a racketeering business. Capone joined Torrio's James Street Boys Gang, rising eventually to the Five Points Gang. In a scrape in a brothel-saloon, a young hoodlum slashed Capone with a knife or razor across his left cheek, prompting the later nickname "Scarface."

The St. Valentine's Day Massacre which became a national media event immortalizing Capone as the most ruthless, feared, smartest and elegant of gangland bosses. Even while powerful forces were amassing against him, Capone indulged in one last bloody act of revenge—the killing of 2 Sicilian colleagues who he believed had betrayed him. Capone invited his victims to a sumptuous banquet where he brutally pulverized them with a baseball bat.

Capone's health was exacerbated by tertiary syphilis and he became confused and disorientated. His sentence was finally reduced to 6.5 years for good behavior. After release, Capone slowly deteriorated at his Palm Island palace. Mae, his wife stuck by him until January 25, 1947 when he died of cardiac arrest at age 48.
