Al Capone: Icon 2014
Description: Al Capone - The quintessential self-made American man, ruthless killer, or both? To this day we are fascinated with this celebrity gangster. Americans love a terrible boy; a tragic anti-hero. Al Capone is one of the originals, one of the most notorious bootleggers and gangsters of the twentieth century, believed to have personally murdered variety of folks and ordered the killing of hundreds of others. But that’s only one side of this complicated man. He was also a hugely famous public figure, dynamic and charismatic; he opened one of the nation's first soup kitchens, and was a devoted patron and guardian of jazz, giving African American musicians occasions that they would otherwise never have had. So what made him a crime boss instead of a strong politician?

By the Name of Tania #

Released 2/10/2019

With its strong imagery, the girl’s traumatic odyssey embodies the destruction of life in a capitalist globe in connection with horrific natural devastation.

She stood by him in the court situation until he was found innocent and then she decided to "make something nice of this situation" and left her £16k pa nursing job and hired a publicity agent. This got her some great work (Richard & Judy for one) and the cash was coming in nicely - until a tabloid broke a "story" about her having group sex with Leslie and some strangers. She denies it at first but then milks it by getting £50k for a "confession" to a Sunday paper - a confession she tells the papers twisted. However, her denials were for naught when a sex tape showing the entire thing hit the internet. However, getting the profits from that movie when it was released on dvd, Abi also found herself in demand from the tabloids and men's magazine. Owning half the rights to the photographs is a great earner for her, along with the publicity do's, the calendars

Al Capone: Icon Reviews:

Icon: Al Capone (2014) *** 1/2 (out of 4)Highly entertaining documentary from the PBS station that takes a look at the rise and fall of Al Capone. This documentary details interviews with retired Police Detective Thomas Reppetto, UNLA Mob Historian Michael Green, writer-director Vince Gilligan, journalist Tim Weiner, ex-mob member Frank Calabrese, Jr. and jazz musician Cassandra Wilson.ICON: AL CAPONE is just one of countless documentaries that deal with the legendary gangster but I personally found this one to be incredibly entertaining and full of information. Not only do we learn about Capone's rise to fame but we also take a look at how it helped change the culture. There are jazz musicians here to talk about jazz in the 1920s and we also receive movie experts talking about how he changed the kind of gangster pictures that were being made. The documentary goes into nice feature about Capone's downfall, starting with the St. Valentine's Day Massacre. If you're a fanatic of Capone or just wish to know more about him then this here would be a nice zone to start.


Icon: Al Capone (2014) *** 1/2 (out of 4)Here's other highly entertaining episode in the series that takes a look at different icons and how they achieved their status. This episode takes a look at the rise and fall of gangster Al Capone who for a while was a notorious celebrity as he was ruling the Chicago mob.There have been countless documentaries and films based around Al Capone but this one here gives us a new take on the subject. Sure, we receive the typical stories like the St. Valentine's Day Massacre as well as stories about Ness and of course what finally brought Capone down. What this documentary offers is the cultural impact that Capone had. This contains how the media covered him, his impact on Hollywood as well as the Jazz scene.I thought the stories dealing with the impact Capone had on the media as well as the melody business was the most fascinating and especially how the Jazz stage was used to support push the gambling and the alcohol. All of this is said is a nice method that keeps the viewer entertained from begin to finish.


Not sure how this has a 6.6/10 here on IMDb, but I found this to be a unbelievable Documentary. I did feel it was a tad too short and they didn't go into too much detail, but this really gives you an overall picture of who this boy was and how he influenced America. They did also have some interesting imagery that I've never seen before and the commentary from the cast also adds a lot. Even if you know everything about Al Capone, I think you will search yourself entertained watching this.
