Editorial Reviews

Crazy as a bedbug they called him... and the nickname stuck.

Bugsy.

Born in Brooklyn in 1906, Benjamin Siegel was a young thug shaking down pushcart vendors for protection money when the Prohibition gave him his first job, as a bootlegger.

Working his way through the ranks of the New York Underworld, Bugsy s callous disregard for human life made him a valuable enforcer for Murder, Inc., that infamous army of Mob assassins.

It was through SCARFACE star George Raft that Bugsy gained entrance into the Hollywood demimonde, brushing shoulders with A-list actors, starlets, producers and West Coast
gangster Mickey Cohen.

Seeing potential in the undeveloped cowtown of Las Vegas, Bugsy borrowed millions to build the Flamingo Hotel, a lavish casino he hoped would put Vegas on the map. Bugsy s dream of a gaming dynasty in the Nevada desert ended abruptly with his still unsolved murder in June of 1947.

DON T CALL ME BUGSY is the true story of the Moses of American Organized Crime who, like his Biblical counterpart, led his people through the desert but never lived to see the promised land.

This documentary features the testimony of writer/director Max Allan Collins (THE ROAD TO PERDITION), comedienne Rose Marie (THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW), screenwriter Charles Bennett (THE 39 STEPS) and the associates, lawyers, barbers, cops and cronies who knew Bugsy well... and lived to tell his story.


Includes rare footage of the early stages of Las Vegas and the historical Flamingo Casino

Available for the first time on DVD

Bugsy Siegel s life story has been made into several feature films, including the Academy Award Winning film BUGSY, starring Warren Beatty and Annette Bening.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't Call Me Bugsy DVD April 24, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
He was handsome. He was glamorous.And in a seedy underworld of ruthless murderers,he was the most vicious of them all.

This DVD presents an up-close look at the mobster who lived his life at nothing short of full-throttle. Examine Siegel's greatest lagacy as the founding father of glittering Las Vegas,Nevada.

Having traveled to Las Vegas during the 70's 80's 90's I am very interested in the history of the town.

Bugsy Siegel played a major roll in developing Las Vegas to what it has become today.

I viewed part of this movie on one of the cable channels and decided tom purchase a copy.

I search the net to found the best price and delivery at Amazon and purchase a copy for my home library.

I would recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in the History of Las Vegas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good documentary on Benny October 28, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The rare footage in this video is the reason I purchased it. Benny was a mafioso, killer, and gambler. Yet he was admired by most Hollywood celebrities for his charm and immense power. Definitely a DVD to see.
