United Artists released Scarface to theaters on April 9, 1932. Howard Hawks and Richard Rosson co-directed the film which starred Paul Muni, Ann Dvorak, and Karen Morley.
In Scarface, Tony Camonte is a violent and ambitious gangster on the rise in the Chicago underworld. Once he kills his boss, Big Louie, on behalf of the South Side mobster, Johnny Lovo, Tony becomes his second in command. However, Lovo warns Tony to stay from North Side boss named O’Hara. Tony is pretty aggressive when it comes to getting rid of any opposition in his path. Soon, he takes a fancy to Lovo’s girlfriend, and gets her under his thumb too. Eventually, Tony takes control of the South Side away from Lovo, and sets his sites on the North side. The beginning of the end comes for him when he finds best friend, Guino Rinaldo, with his sister in her apartment. That leads to a fatal mistake Tony will regret.
