Alphonse Capone was a gangster from Chicago. He became notorious for being a major bootlegger of alcohol during the Prohibition era of the 1920s and 30s.


In 1920, Capone moved from New York City to Chicago, and teamed up with Jim Torio. Using the alias of "Al Brown", he got a job as a waiter in one of Jim Colosimo's speakeasies. Capone and Torio plotted to kill Colosimo and have it blamed on a rival gang. Indiana Jones, a waiter at Colosimo's Restaurant, and his friends, Eliot Ness and Ernest Hemingway, began investigating Colosimo's murder. Jones ran into "Brown" during the funeral procession of the prominent businessman. Later, the three crime solvers discovered that Capone and Torio were responsible - but the corrupt police under John J. Garrity were not interested in their discovery, and Capone remained free.[1]

Capone and Jones met once more in 1927, when Capone tried to shut down Jack Shannon's speakeasy, The Nest. Capone failed to recognize Jones, and when asked his name, Indiana threw a punch at Capone. The swing missed, and Jones was promptly knocked out by Capone's thugs.[2]

In 1931, Capone received an eleven-year prison sentence for tax evasion.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

Al Capone was portrayed by Nicholas Turturro in The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles.

In real life, Capone was born the same year (1899) that Indiana Jones is said to have been born in the TV series.
