Overview

Al Capone's involvement in the underworld of speakeasies, gangs, and liquor wars left hundreds dead in Chicago and surrounding communities. This episode of the A&E Biography series profiles Capone's terrorizing rule as the Windy City's undisputed emperor. Born in Brooklyn, NY, in 1899, Capone led a rags-to-riches life built on bootlegging, gambling, and prostitution during the Prohibition era. Capone was convicted of income tax evasion on 1931 and sentenced to 11 years in prison; however, he was released just eight years later because of symptoms related to syphilis. Rare photos, films, and exclusive interviews reconstruct Capone's notorious rise to fame and his final demise at the hands of Elliot Ness.
