Bonnano A Godfather's Story

The true life story of mafia boss Joesph Bonanno. The story spans from Bonanno's early beginings in Italy, to his conquests in America. In the violent secret world of the mafia, no Don ruled longer than Joe Bonanno of the powerful Castellamarese family. This is the true chilling saga, told in his own words- a compelling journey that leads a small boy from Sicily to become the pre-eminent leader of America's vast criminal empire. Featuring a remarkable all-star cast, including Academy-Awards winner Martin Landau, Robert Loggia, Costas Mandylor and Edward James Olmos, Bonanno: A Godfather's Story spans many decades and international locations. The young "Pepino" flees his fascist oppressors in Italy to make a new start in America. His deep family ties and fiery ambition soon take him to the innermost circles of New York organized crime, where he rises to become the youngest Mafia boss ever. From his showdown with the deadly Gambino gang, his clashes with Lucky Luciano, his meetings with President Roosevelt, his backroom deals with Joseph Kennedy to his final betrayal by his own family, this is Bonanno's own true, inside account based on the best-selling autobiography. For over 40 years, Don Joseph Bonanno ruled with both ruthlessness and honor- and survived as the last of the Godfathers. Only now can his full story be told.
