Scarface (Dir. Howard Hawks, 1932): Generally regarded to be the best - and most brutal - of the classic gangster films, the original Scarface tells the story of orginised crime's pinch on the city of Chicago during prohibition.
Paul Muni plays Tony Carmonte, an ambitious hood with a Napoleonic urge to fight his way to number one gang boss. When the last of the old-style crime bosses is brutally slain down, the finger is pointed at Tony and Johnny Loro, a rival gangster. However, Tony's desire to move up the ladder is about to put him in the firing line of his peers and the police.
Produced and directed by the mercurial Howard Hawks, Scarface is the movie which established both Paul Muri and his coin flipping aide George Raft as major Hollywood stars.
Scarface (Dir. Brian De Palma, 1983): Al Pacino gives an unforgettable performance as Tony Montana, one of the most ruthless gangsters ever depicted on film, in this gripping cult crime epic inspired by the 1932 classic of the same title.
Scarface follows the violent career of a small-time Cuban refugee hoodlum who guns his way to the top of Miami's cocaine empire, and makes some ruthless friends and enemies on the way to oblivion...
