An ‘Untouchable' Reputation? The Truth about Eliot Ness, with Douglas Perry

For many Americans, the name Eliot Ness conjures up images of a young Kevin Costner in 1987's film “The Untouchables,” or perhaps Robert Stack's version from a few decades earlier. Our younger listeners may not recognize the name at all. But for a time, Eliot Ness was legendary, famously taking on Al Capone and the Chicago mob, leading daring raids as a Prohibition agent, cleaning up the Cleveland police department, and generally solidifying his reputation as an American hero. Until that is, it all ended.  Join us for this fascinating conversation with Douglas Perry, author of “Eliot Ness: The Rise and Fall of An American Hero.” From Eliot's exploits as a Prohibition agent to his complicated relationship with women to the insecurities that plagued this man who is often depicted as being larger-than-life, we cover it all in this lively interview.  #DouglasPerry #Chicago #EliotNess #AlCapone #Prohibition #TheGirlsofMurderCity  #Cleveland

1930. Prohibition has transformed Chicago into a City at War. Rival gangs compete for control of the city's billion dollar empire of illegal alcohol, enforcing their will with the hand grenade and the tommy gun. It is the time of the Ganglords. It is the time of Al Capone. And now its time for Tim Williams and guest co-host Nicholas Pepin, from "Pop Culture Roulette" Podcast to discuss “The Untouchables” from 1987 on this episode of the 80's Flick Flashback Podcast! Here are some additional behind the scenes trivia we were unable to cover in this episode: Despite his Oscar win for this movie, there was some amount of criticism directed at Sean Connery for playing an Irish-American cop while using his native Scottish accent. Andy Garcia is a Cuban, portraying an Italian, who's passing himself off as a non-Italian American. There was originally a different ending for the movie. It was to have been a scene with the camera shooting a close-up of Robert De Niro's face as it is being warmed up for a shave. Then, the camera would have pulled up while still focused on Capone to show the audience that he has reporters around him, much like the opening scene of the movie, but this time, he is in his jail cell.

What do pirates, Al Capone, and getting your name and trademark have to do with Sleeman's beer? Dave Young: Welcome to the Empire Builders Podcast, teaching business owners the not so secret techniques that took famous businesses from mom and pop to major brands. Stephen Semple is a marketing consultant, story collector, and storyteller. I'm Stephen's sidekick and business partner, Dave Young. Before we get into today's episode, a word from our sponsor, which is, well, it's us, but we're highlighting ads we've written and produced for our clients, so here's one of those. [Travis Crawford Ad] Dave Young: Welcome back to the Empire Builders Podcast. Dave Young here with you alongside Stephen Semple. Today, Stephen, as we head into year two of the podcast, you told me the topic, and I have never heard... I'm assuming we're back to Canada products. Stephen Semple: We're back to Canada, yes. Dave Young: This is Sleeman's Beer. I don't know anything about it. I don't love the name. I hope I love the story because the beer sounds like a product that maybe Bart Simpson would order it at the bar when he goes in: "Give me a bottle of Sleeman's." Stephen Semple: After you hear this story, you're going to be begging me to bring a case of this beer down for you. Dave Young: Well, I expect you to. Stephen Semple: Maybe we're talking about beer today because living in Canada in the summertime, and I'm here on the lake, the other night, I was sitting out and just enjoying one of those beautiful evenings in Canada. You know what I was drinking? I was drinking a bottle of Sleeman's Cream Ale, which is actually one of my favorite beers, and I've loved it for a long time. I said, "You know what? I need to tell the story of this beer because it's an awesome, awesome story." That's kind of where it all started was that inspiration. It was originally started in 1834 by John Sleeman. Dave Young: Holy cow, that's a while back. Stephen Semple: 99 years later, in 1933, it was shut down, and then opened again by the great-great-grandson, the fifth-generation brewer, John Sleeman, in 1988, 55 years after being shut down. Dave Young: Wow. Stephen Semple: In 2006, 18 years after reopening, it was sold to Sapporo for $400 million, and today is the third-largest brewery in Canada. So it's really quite a journey. Dave Young: That's amazing. Stephen Semple: The Sleeman family name was originally Slyman. Dave Young: Slyman? Stephen Semple: In the 1600s- Dave Young: Yeah, that's better Stephen Semple: You're going to love this. In the 1600s, the Slyman family were pirates running illegal ventures out of England. Dave Young: Of course they were. Stephen Semple: Of course they were. Dave Young: Why wouldn't they be? Stephen Semple: This is documented. They were privateers. They were pirates. By the middle of the 1800s, they decide to go legit and invest in something they really liked, beer! Dave Young: Why not? Stephen Semple: Because what pirate doesn't like beer? So they started a brewery and a string of pubs in England. At that time they changed the name from Slyman to Sleeman because they wanted to get away from their pirate past. Dave Young: That whole pirate background thing. Stephen Semple: That whole pirate background. Dave Young: You wouldn't want people to think that you were the same family. Stephen Semple: Exactly, as who pillaged them the year before. Dave Young: Just change the vowel. Stephen Semple: In 1834, John Sleeman moves to Canada. He arrives in St. Catharine's from Cornwall, England, and he starts a brewery called Stamford Springs. He operated this brewery for 20 years quite successfully. But this was the time of the Industrial Revolution, and due to industrialization, the water in the St. Catherine's area became heavily contaminated,

Making a name for himself on the opposite side of bootlegging as his scarfaced sibling, James ran away from Brooklyn as a teenager to join the circus, earned himself a wife and job as town marshal after saving a family from a flood, and became the slap-happiest prohibition officer Nebraska ever saw.

David Stashower, author of "American Demon: Eliot Ness and the Search for America's Jack the Ripper." The book discusses a terrifying series of unexplained and gruesome murders that occurred in Cleveland, Ohio in the mid 1930's - and the efforts of Eliot Ness, fresh off of bringing Al Capone to justice, to identify and apprehend the killer. This was one of America's first serial killers- at a time when that term had not yet been coined.

In Episode 19 Pettengill shifts the conversation to America's West Coast. Ever since Al Capone's 1928 trip to Los Angeles, mafia heads had dreamed of the potential the western rackets had to offer. The problem was that those western rackets weren't exactly open terrain. The City Hall Gang had owned the city's underworld since 1921. More notably, they controlled the LAPD. Conquering the West would be a process for the mafia but by the mid 1930s, the mafia's "Manifest Destiny" - a sea-to-sea empire - was beginning to take shape. Pettengill ends this episode by introducing listeners to the major players in this process, including but not limited to Johnny Roselli, Mickey Cohen, and Tony Cornero.

Episode 20 begins to piece together the moving parts of the West Coast mob. Listeners met Johnny Roselli, Mickey Cohen, and Tony Cornero in the previous episode. This episode will begin to weave the complex tapestry that was Hollywood's mafia scene. Pettengill notes how much of this process began when Al Capone tried to extend his influence into Southern California. It was unsuccessful but he did stumble upon Roselli in the process. And before long, Roselli became Capone's "man in Hollywood." Not to be outdone, the Eastern Syndicate sent their man, Benny Bugsy Siegel, to counter the influence of the Chicago Outfit. Sprinkled into the mix are individuals like Harry Cohn and Billy Wilkerson, who had complicated relationships with numerous underworld figures. Collectively, these individuals helped organized crime reinvent itself as the nation neared the Second World War.

In July, a popular uprising in Sri Lanka forced the country's president, Gotabaya Rajapaksa, to step down and flee the country. Rajapaksa is accused of carrying out massive atrocities more than a decade ago.  Reveal reporter and host Ike Sriskandarajah looks into why powerful people suspected of committing war crimes often walk free. Sriskandarajah spent six months investigating the U.S. government's failure to charge accused perpetrators of the worst crimes in the world. The federal government says it is pursuing leads and cases against nearly 1700 alleged human rights violators and war criminals. Victims of international atrocities sometimes even describe running into them at their local coffee shop or in line at Walgreens.   After the end of Sri Lanka's civil war, families seeking accountability for state-sanctioned violence filed a suit against a man they say is a war criminal. A private eye was tasked with hunting down Gota, Sri Lanka's former defense minister. The P.I.  found the alleged war criminal in Southern California, shopping at Trader Joe's.  At the close of World War II, dozens of former Nazi leaders came to the United States. After decades of inaction, in 1979, President Jimmy Carter created a special unit within the Department of Justice dedicated to hunting down Nazi war criminals. Decades after passing the first substantive human rights statutes that make it possible to prosecute war criminals for crimes like torture and genocide, the U.S. has successfully prosecuted only one person under the laws. Sriskandrajah talks to experts about why prosecutors often take an “Al Capone” strategy to going after war criminals, pursuing them on lesser charges like immigration violations rather than human rights abuses.  With little action from the government to prosecute war criminals, victims of violence are instead using civil lawsuits to try to seek accountability. Lawyers at the Center for Justice & Accountability have brought two dozen cases against alleged war criminals and human rights violators – and never lost at trial. But when the lawyers share their evidence with the federal government, it often feels like the information disappears into a black box.  This is a rebroadcast of an episode originally released on April 22, 2022.
