      Trivia

      The exterior set of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel set was built with the interior included, up to the elevator doors, so characters could be seen entering and exiting the hotel in unbroken shots. See more »

      Goofs

      Al Capone's son, Sonny, is portrayed as being entirely deaf at the age of two. In real life Sonny contracted an infection that left him only partially deaf and only at age seven. However, this series is intended to be fictional, not based on real life events. Factual inaccuracies are therefore not considered goofs. See more »
