Gangsters are among some of the most dangerous men and women in the world. They are part of organized crime groups who are either involved in drugs, theft, murder or a combination of all three and more, to gain profit and power. The world and Hollywood have seen an abundance of these men and woman over the years and it's now time to put that knowledge to the test. Just how many real and fictional gangsters can you name from just a picture?
Because of their popularity in real life, many Hollywood movie producers took inspiration from what actually happened and put it into film. Enter movies like "Scarface," "The Godfather," "The Public Enemy," and "Invisible Stripes." Some of these movies have gone down in history as some of the most successful of not just the gangster genre, but of all movies in the world.
Hollywood's gangster movie success, in turn, inspired many criminals to try to pull off the heists portrayed in the films. And although not many succeeded, a few did go down in history. They include Joaquin Archivaldo Guzman, Griselda Blanco, and John Gotti, all of whom are in this quiz. Are you enough of a fan to recognize them all?
