- Synopsis / Plot
- When the legendary Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel was sent west by Meyer Lansky and Charlie "Lucky" Luciano to seize control of the West Coast rackets, he became fascinated with Hollywood. His disarming charm and unpredictable behavior quickly made him a favorite among movie stars, sports figures, motion picture executives... and a starlet nicknamed "The Flamingo," Virginia Hill. Bugsy was an actor without an on-screen part to play, so his life became his role and his vision became his justification for being -- a vision of a hotel in the desert, a palace, a city: Las Vegas.
