Scopa / The Cermak Hit The story is based upon an actual event, the execution of Giuseppe Zangara and his supposed assassination attempt of President Elect Franklin D. Roosevelt. Supposedly Zangara was trying to kill FDR but the guy who ends up getting shot is Anton Cermak, the Mayor of Chicago. Cermak did not die that night. He died in the hospital days later and it wasn’t from the gunshot wound. Giuseppe Zangara, the ‘would be assassin’, was fried in the electric chair within two months of the incident.
