John Gotti was born into a poor Bronx family in the 1940s. Before entering high school he had already embarked upon a life of crime, and in his twenties befriended individuals who would accompany him on his ascent to become boss of the Gambino crime family.
Gotti differed from traditional mob bosses, who frowned upon involving themselves in drug sales. This, along with his flamboyant personality, earned him media attention and eventually an unwanted investigation by the FBI. When a former associate became a state witness against the mobster, Gotti's image as the 'Teflon Don' quickly faded.
Gotti won an Emmy Award and three Golden Globe nominations.
