Summary
If he hadn't been a gangster, he might have been honored on a postage stamp, as the Father of Las Vegas. When Benjamin 'Bugsy' Siegel ventured west with some of the Eastern mob's investment funds in the early 1940s, he fell in love with the movies, and a feisty moll named Virginia Hill. Siegel had a vision, which gave rise to an historic plan to transform Las Vegas from a sleepy, sand-choked backwater into an international entertainment Mecca. Nobody shared his vision, but he knew that if he built it, they would come. He built it with other people's money, dangerous people like Meyer Lansky, Moe Green, and Charlie Luciano. While creating this seductive vision, he became so obsessed with it that he was rubbed out before he could see the modern city that sprang from his dream. In their posh Vegas boardrooms, though, the mobsters made out like bandits
