The original 1932 version of “Scarface”, directed by Howard Hawks and Richard Rosson. Big Louis Costillo, the last of the old-style gang leaders, is slain, and his former bodyguard Tony Camonte is taken into custody. Since Costillo's body has never been found, the police have to release him, though they strongly suspect Johnny Lovo paid Tony to remove Big Louis. Tony begins taking over the rackets in town with violent enforcement, and he becomes a threat to Johnny and the other bosses unless they work for Tony. Their dissatisfaction and the relentless pursuit of the police push Tony towards a major confrontation.
