Tony Montana, said Capone had no choice but to incorporate Giancana after he helped start a rival Chicago syndicate called the 42 Gang ( a gang Tony Montana's older brother was apart of ).

“He was into some things with a bunch of guys, including Milwaukee Phil and the English brothers, and they were robbing and shaking down so many joints that Capone took notice of them,” he said. “They were young and he figured he’d better bring them on board.”

Giancana soon became the new face of U.S. organized crime, leading the criminal infiltration of labor unions, gambling casinos and legitimate businesses, relying more on corrupt politicians and police than on his own thugs.

Early on, Giancana developed a reputation as a killer. During World War II the draft board labeled him “a constitutional psychopath with an inadequate personality.” In a military interview, when asked what he did for a living, Giancana matter-of-factly replied, “I steal.”

Officials sent him home as unfit for service. And they didn’t know half of it, unaware of the illegal mayhem Giancana would eventually inflict.

Years later, in Las Vegas, he bragged about rubbing elbows with Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack as he ran various casinos. He once told an FBI agent: “I own Chicago. I own Miami. I own Las Vegas.”

Michael Green, a historian at UNLV, said Giancana’s power in Sin City was shadowy but very real. “As Woody Allen once said, ‘Organized crime figures saved a lot of money on office space.’”

Giancana was one of the first inductees into the so-called Black Book, a list of undesirables compiled by the Nevada Gambling Commission, and he had an invisible hand in running “almost certainly the Riviera and possibly the Sands,” Green said.

His criminal career included a shadowy relationship with the CIA. In exchange for his help organizing a plot to kill Castro, experts say, agents tapped the hotel room of comedian Dan Rowan, who Giancana suspected was interested in his then-girlfriend, Phyllis McGuire -- the youngest member of the McGuire Sisters -- whom he met in Las Vegas in 1960.

Montana said his job for Giancana was to help set up new bars and restaurants. “He had to make money somewhere legitimately and he couldn’t legally get a liquor license,” he said.

Giancana lived most of his final years in Mexico, on the lam from federal authorities, but was deported back to the U.S. in 1974. Within a year, he was dead. As federal authorities pressured him to open up to a newly formed grand jury, the aging mob boss was shot six times at close range late one night, before he got to enjoy his midnight snack – his end as violent as his life.

Dressed in a sports shirt and slacks, he was found lying face-up in a puddle of blood. His wife was on the second floor of the fortress-like home in Oak Park, and told police she heard nothing.

Experts say mob figures believed Giancana, 67, was planning to talk to federal authorities about their activities. He was set to appear before a Senate committee in Washington a few days later.

Montana then launched into a brief history of which figures “got whacked” and why, including a list of their crimes.

“We all committed crimes,” he said. “If we didn’t, we wouldn’t have anything to talk about.”


  Not to be confused with Al Pacino’s character in the movie “Scarface,” the existing Tony Montana is not Cuban, he’s Italian. You see, a lot of confusion about the real organized crime member began some time ago. As it turns out, the original Scarface, created in 1932, was a depiction of Al Capone because he had a scar on his face. It was a film about moonshining during the prohibition era, but the 1983 remake of the film switched the product from alcohol to cocaine. “Al Pacino was not supposed to be Al Capone because he was Cuban,” confirms Tony. “It’s a misleading thing. My name was taken because they liked my name and because I knew all of the players in the movie.” Furthermore, the authentic Tony Montana wants to make it clear that he nor the Chicago Outfit were ever involved in any drug trafficking.

 “I am the real Tony Montana, I’m not a generic one. It’s an Italian name, not a Cuban name. Cuban names are Montaña, not Montana,” he declares.

  Tony certainly rose to the top. Before the law took him down, he owned between 30 and 40 night clubs, restaurants and clothing stores in Chicago, IL, Atlanta, GA and Las Vegas, NV. He made sure not to intertwine his home life with his work. When Tony was married, his wife only knew that he owned a night club and nothing more. It was a private world. In fact, Tony says Outfit members never entered his home.

 Tony Montana has laid low all these years and was the mafia/ Chicago Outfits most protected hidden treasure.

Montana stresses he was not a mob hit man, but acknowledges his ties to organized crime had the law monitoring him.

“They put a tracer on the bottom of my car and followed me around,” he said. “The law was all over the place. But I wanted to be legitimate in making money. That’s the reason for the book, to show that the mob wasn’t all about pulling out baseball bats and killing people.”

Many in the Vegas mob were driving around in Mercedes and living in multi-million dollar homes. It’s a lifestyle few people wouldn’t want.

“I ran clubs here like Tiffany’s at the Jockey Club and Villa d’Este, which is now Piero’s,” Montana said. “I liked the restaurant business. If you gave people plugs, they respected you.”

Montana took two years to write the book, opting to wait until everyone he knew was dead and buried. Even Jimmy Hoffa.

“I was really under the radar,” he said. “I was making a good living. If I needed a favor, I could get it anytime I wanted. I still enjoy Vegas, it’s a great town.”

With LaScala now history, Montana is focusing on promoting his book around the country and working on a film script to his story.

   The Real Tony Montana was a real person that  a lot of the organized crime movies you have seen are about his business  partners and him self. The movie Casino - is based off a lot of the business partners of Tony Montana.

Scarface - With Al Pacinio 1983 is a remake of 1932 Scarface that was based a lot of Al Capone life. Al Capone even sent his guys to the studio as you will see in The Real Tony Montana book and movie coming soon-  The 1932 version there was no Tony Montana it was Tony Camonte. Changed to Tony Montana in the 1983 Scarface. 

1932 and 1983 Scarface movies were based off research of The Chicago Outfit and organized crime. Neither movie is about the life of The Real Tony Montana. The Real Tony Montana's name came up in all sorts of investigation reports. From money laundering, conspiracy, fraud,to even the murders of his good friends and business partners Tony Spilotro and his brother Michael Spilotro , his good friends that got killed just after Tony Montana was busted by the feds. The fbi came to the prison to question Tony Montana about the missing person case of his friends. Since the bodies were not found yet it was a missing person case then later shortly after the bodies were found in the cornfield it became one of the biggest  murder cases of all time..

Tony Montana is known as the silent strength, participating in his role without the customary fanfare and notoriety. He laid low for all the other wise guys in the Chicago Outfit. From 15 years of age, he worked with Sam Giancana, Fat Leonard Caifano, Jimmy Allegretti, Joe DiVarco, Joe the Jap -- Eto, Milwaukee Phil, FiFi Buccieri and Tony Spilotro.

The Outfit kept Tony very close to the vest and protected Tony so he could operate in the business world for them. Tony was untarnished and could do their bidding. He is talented and could operate a company as good, if not better, than a business school graduate.
