Lucky Luciano: Softy

"In 1949, when Mob leader Lucky Luciano was banished from Rome and sent back to his hometown of Lercara Friddi, in Sicily, he sent the other photographers on a wild-goose chase and selected Slim Aarons to be the exclusive chronicler of the journey. 'His father came up and they kissed,' Aarons recalls of the Sicilian homecoming. 'Lucky said, "Don't take a picture of that. People will think I'm a sissy."'"
