Description

2003 marks the 50th anniversary of the death of Al Capone. Perhaps more than any other individual, Capone went on to leave a lasting impression on western culture - the American Gangster.

The Promised Land:
In the early 1900's, highly organised gangs emerged to rule the streets, as the gangster life became a quick road out of poverty.

Bootleg Years:
When the manufacture, sale and distributuion of alcohol was banned in 1920, a bootleg industry flourished overnight. It was highly organised; it was trans-national; it generated millions of dollars. And it gave birth to the Mob.

The Mob Underground:
How the Mob operated like an underworld business corporate is the most fascinating part of the gangster story. It began in 1930s New York by Salvatore 'Charlie Lucky' Luciano.
