‘Scarface’ Movie Summary
Tony Camonte is an Italian immigrant in 1920’s Chicago, working for mafioso Johnny Lovo. Johnny orders Tony to kill Louis Costillo, the city’s boss on the south side of town. This allows Johnny to take control of the area with Tony as his right-hand man.
Tony has free reign as Johnny’s second in command, but Johnny warns Tony not to mess with the north side of town which Irish gangs control. However, Tony doesn’t heed the warnings. He starts leaning on bars belonging to the gangster O’Hara. This causes him to run afoul of the thugs there, and it sparks the interest of the police too.
Johnny knows Tony’s ambitious, and might try to take him over too, but for now, he still feels he’s in control. At the same time, Tony begins to set his sites on Johnny’s girlfriend, Poppy. She only pays attention to him as his reputation grows in the city.Read the full summary
