Capone earned the nickname “Scarface” at eighteen while working as a bouncer in Frankie Yale’s Brooklyn bar, the Harvard Inn. Capone’s left cheek and neck were cut after he insulted a patron and her brother pulled a knife to defend her honor. Capone always preferred to be photographed on his right side.
