The Mystery of Al Capone’s Vaults

The date… April 21st 1986. The host.. Geraldo Rivera. The event… the opening of a secret vault once owned by noted gangster Al Capone.

What could be in the vault? Perhaps great riches? Perhaps bodies of Capone’s victims? Over 30 million tuned into the two hour special to find out LIVE what was inside….

For a while Geraldo was the brunt of many jokes, but it still doesn’t change the fact that his special became the most watched syndicated television special in history.
