When Tony Montana (Al Pacino) emigrated from Cuba to the United States he was penniless.  He quickly found work at a small diner as a cook, but dreamed of much more.  Montana quit that job abruptly one night, realizing that the world could be his.

 

Within only a few short years Pacino's character became one of Miami's richest and most infamous cocaine distributors.  As Tony's wealth and power increased so did his problems, including a drug-addicted wife and violent competition.  Montana lived a criminal version of the American dream, blinded by greed and unaware of his impending downfall.

 

Scarface was nominated for three Golden Globes.  The film was a commercial success, earning $65 million at the box office.
