A mugshot of Al Capone.

It was on this date in 1926 that members of Bug Moran's Northside Gang riddled a restaurant full of bullets where Al Capone was eating. Capone escaped relatively unscathed, though other patrons were injured. And it was on this date in 1932 that the very first international film festival took place in Venice.
