Scarface was many things too many people - a ruthless and vindictive murderer, a generous patron and a wild and glamorous impresario. But to all, Capone is the most notorious gangster in American history. This in-depth programme follows his journey from the immigrant neighbourhood of his youth to the glittering circles of Chicago's powerful elite. For much of the century, they were the most powerful force in American organised crime. But internal striife and the tireless work of law enforcement brought this once-dominant organisation to its knees. From his childhood on the New York City Streets to his ongoing attempts to come to terms with his criminal pasty, biography chronicles the life of the man whose story formed the basis for the hit movie.
