0800.9412 "Family Ties of Brazzi May Lead to Capone" Hollywood Reporter, by David Robb, 12/28/94 1 page with small photo; daughter of Chicago mobster swears Rossano secretly married her in 1954 and they had a son. Divorce not being legal in Italy until 1974 this wasn't even remotely possible, or even legal ... but far be it from us to publicly question the daughter of Chicago mobster. Hollywood Reporter apparently didn't, and (with one eye on the legal ramifications of reporting this wild, one-sided story) ran the story a few days after his death, while his family was otherwise occupied with grieving.
