Angelo Bruno | The Reel Story


A documentary detailing the life of Philadelphia mobster Angelo Bruno. From his humble beginnings as a grocery store owner to Boss of the Philadelphia underworld. Known as the docile don, the nickname he earned for his preference of diplomacy over violence.

Many years before Tony Caponigro sat down with Funzi Tieri to discuss hitting Bruno, the two had a beef over New Jersey territory which Caponigro controlled at the time, but Tieri thought belonged to him. The dispute was taken to the commission and they ruled in Caponigros favour. Tieri never forgot the incident.

(Slight correction on the video, Paul Castellano was Carlo Gambinos cousin and not nephew as stated).
