He killed people but he had charisma, and a talent for publicity. Now, it's Al Capone's former mansion in Miami Beach that is stirring up headlines.
The oceanfront residence on the private Palm Island is on the market for $8.45 million, reports NBC5 in the bootlegger's old stomping grounds, Chicago.
Capone paid $40,000 for the place in 1928 (it was built in 1922 by Clarence Busch, of the Anheuser-Busch brewing family), and is reputed to have plotted the 1929 St. Valentine's Day Massacre, in which he rubbed out rival Windy City liquor dispensers, there.

Calling all house-hunting movie buffs: If you recognize the source of this line – "The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize" – and appreciate Southern architecture, get your bids ready.
The historic Louisiana residence where the all-star 1989 movie Steel Magnolias was filmed is being placed on the auction block Oct. 26, along with all the antiques and furnishings inside it.
Built in 1840, the movie stomping ground of Shirley MacLaine, Sally Field, Olympia Dukakis, Daryl Hannah and Julia Roberts in the town of Natchitoches was used as a hospital during the Civil War and recently operated as a bed-and-breakfast. Like the women in the movie, it epitomizes Southern character – genteel on the outside but strong of foundation.

Kathy Griffin is quick to fess up: She has no clue how to decorate a home.
"I have an eye for when it's done well, but I can't do it myself," admits the Emmy-winning comedian. "It's like nobody loves a great pizza more than I do, but I couldn't make one if my life depended on it."
So when it came to renovating her 7,300-sq.-ft. spread atop the Hollywood Hills, Griffin turned to her friend Lara Spencer, co-anchor of Good Morning America and a longtime interior designer.

When you are best friends, have gobs of money and a love for the Mexican seaside, there is really only one thing to do: build jaw-dropping adjoining Mexican villas, of course!
Just ask longtime BFFs George Clooney, Rande Gerber and wife Cindy Crawford, who did just that in Los Cabos, on the southern tip of Mexico's Baja peninsula, and are showing off their to-die-for vacation homes in November's Architectural Digest.
The trio named the compound Casamigos – "House of Friends" – and the longtime close pals, who launched a tequila company of the same name, use the structures accordingly.
