This is, by far, the most informative biography on the legendary gangster Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel. It looks at his life as a mobster, and as a business man and of coarse, as a ladies man. Hard to believe how such a charming and dapper man could be what he was. This is a must see piece for anyone who is interested in history, Las Vegas, Bugsy, the mob, .....You'll enjoy this..i guarantee!!!

Bugsy Siegel. This name is synonymous with Organized Crime, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Murder and Mystery. A fascinating character, Siegel's name is now more popular than ever. Born Benjamin Siegelbaum in Brooklyn, New York in 1906, Bugsy began his career as a small time extortionist on New York's Lower East Side. Then a few years later he'll become friend with Meyer Lansky, and New York would never be the same again. Because of his notoriously quick and violent temper, he became one of the most infamous and feared gangsters of his day. More than 60 years after his death people are still debating on who might have committed the crime. Bugsy might be dead, but his legend will live forever. A&E's award-winning series BIOGRAPHY profiles the life of the infamous gangster in this 50 minutes documentary. In this documentary you'll learn more about Bugsy's childhood, the birth of Murder Inc, his rise to the top and his brutal demise.

Over the past few months I have seen a lot of documentaries about The Mafia, Organized Crime and Gangsters. In my opinion CRIME INC ( 1984, available here on Amazon ) and LORDS OF THE MAFIA ( hosted by Robert Stack ) are the best documentary series ever made about Organized Crime. Since I've watched these two amazing series many times let's say that I wasn't very impressed by this documentary about Bugsy. You'll enjoy watching this documentary if, like me, you read a lot of books or watch plenty of documentaries about The Mob, but overall this documentary was a disappointment. I was expecting a lot more. First of all the documentary is way too short. 50 minutes to cover such a complex character is ridiculous, this should have been at least 100 minutes long ( 2 episodes ).
