The Best Al Capone Quotes

Quotes from the Mob Boss Al Capone

Al Capone as we know was one of the most feared mafia leaders in the history of the United States. His power was enormous and his wealth was untouchable. Since his passing which was a long time ago, his name lives on throughout the Western world. Merchandise based on Al Capone is still sold throughout a large number of countries and official tours of his residences, major actions and prison are still sought after today by members of the public. A majority of business that goes to the Alcatraz prison tours In San Francisco, goes due to Capone being imprisoned their for tax evasion.

Al had some astonishing quotes which have survived through the test of time. His best quote is based on prohibition which says ‘I am like any other man all I do is supply and demand’. With the public being disappointed about how much Capone profited from prohibition this quote went viral throughout the United States and across the world. Law enforcement were virtually unable to stop him from doing anything and all they could get him for in the end was tax evasion.

Another trademark quote is ‘you can get much further with a kind word and a gun then a kind word alone’. That is the most infamous quote for me from Al Capone. It has lived on until today and similar to fellow mafia leader John Gotti. Capone was quite intelligent despite his limited schooling.

Al Capone Syphillis : Did it kill him?

Did Syphillis Kill Al Capone?

Al Capone conducted Syphillis in the late 1930’s. Many experts said this was due to his sexual routines with a large number of women over the years, however this can’t be proven. Medical testing methods were uncertain at the time and many scholars simply assume this. Never the less despite this being easily treatable and curable today, it was a death sentence back then. With no treatment Capone developed excessive complications due to the syphilis and by the time just before his death his brain had several infections and his mental capacity had been reduced to that of a 12 year old. He was riddled with illness and he suffered multiple stroked towards the end of his life.

Was He The Godfather and On The Time Magazine?

Was Al Capone the Godfather and on time magazine

Al Capone was the greatest godfather in the history of the American mafia. In close competition with John Gotti. Despite Gotti having a bigger army of soldiers below him. Capone started his gang from a much smaller number and built it up. In terms of a business analysis Capone would have been determined as more successful, however Gotti had more soliders under him. Gotti however had this number of soldiers below him when he came into the role as Godfather so he essentially inherited the Gambino family power.  Al Capone was on the front page of the time magazine such was his power throughout the United States. He had more power then successful corporate people throughout the United States and law enforcements were unable to charge him for long periods of time.

Best movie of Al Capone. Our Analysis and Ratings.

Movies of Al Capone - What is the best and where to find it?

The Untouchables is easily the best Al Capone movie ever made. It outlines the rise of Al Capone and how no law enforcement was able to come close to pressing charges against him. As crazy as it sounds all Al Capone could be charged and jailed for ended up being tax evasion and this was due to his accountant leaving certain paper documents in his offices without destroying this information. Capone was then sentenced to prison and served his time at the infamous Alcatraz. Untouchables has an all star cast which is why it makes it the easiest movie to watch and the budget they put aside to make this quality film was solid. I liked this movie and give it a 5 out of 5.

What did he do? How did he succeed? Mafia Boss

What did he do? What was his job? 

Al Capone was the head of the Chicago Mafia. At his peak he had 500 made mafia members that reported directly to him. Even though he is said to be the most powerful mafia boss of all time in the history of the United States, Capone still had inferior power to that of John Gotti. When Gotti was head of the powerful Gambino crime family in the late 1980’s, he had a family of 2000 men under him who would be able to act on his orders. Compare that to Al Capone’s 500 made men below him and that’s why Capone isn’t as powerful in comparison to Gotti in terms of all time mafia status. However Capone’s achievements were remarkable, since he was able to rise to power so fast. His brutal power skills were his key skills which allowed him to progress so quickly.

There are several great Al Capone Documentaries. For as many good documentaries which exist there are just as many bad documentaries. The documentary in the series ‘mobsters’ is one of my favorites.
