Al Capone, 1920s

As his power and wealth increased, Al Capone became a Chicago celebrity. Here he enjoys a front-row seat -- and a visit with the Cubs' Gabby Hartnett -- at a Wrigley Field charity game. Seated to Capone's right, smoking a cigar, is Roland Libonati, a state representative. Capone's son is in between the two men. Behind Capone are three bodyguards including "Machine Gun" Jack McGurn whose face is hidden.
