About Icon

From his early days rising through the ranks of New York’s gangs, to his slow demise in the aftermath of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, Al Capone: Icon chronicles the complicated life of one of America’s favorite mob bosses. The special exposes Capone not only as a bootlegger, killer and gangster, but as the popular public figure who opened one of the nation’s first soup kitchens, fought for expiration dates on milk and wrote love songs to his wife from prison.

It’s been more than 80 years since the height of Capone’s power, yet his impact is still felt. In addition to Capone’s history, Al Capone: Icon unveils his unexpected connections to modern-day organized crime, law enforcement, popular culture and even everyday life in Chicago.
