Geraldo Opened up the vault

Al Capone’s Vault – 1986 was the year Geraldo Rivera lured the American public into watching his April 21, 1986 special “The Mystery of Al Capone’s Vault” with the potential promise of finding some historic artifacts, cache of treasure or maybe the bones of some gangsters inside the walls of the Lexington Hotel, the former headquarters and residence of notorious Chicago mobster, Al Capone. In the end, the whole show was a bust. After watching for an hour, the American public was given Bupkiss, Zilch, Nada, Nothing but some dirt and debris found behind the excavated stone walls in the hotel’s basement.

wow I feel old now
