Bugsy Siegel and George Raft, 1944Download nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: Bugsy Siegel and George Raft, 1944

Description: Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel (Siegelbaum; February 28, 1906-June 20, 1947), member of the national crime syndicate, shown at left in 1944 with close friend and film actor George Raft (Ranft; September 26, 1901-November 28, 1980). Siegel began his criminal career in New York with close friend Meyer Lansky (Meyer Suchowljanski; July 4, 1902-January 15, 1983), the Lansky-Siegel mob, which concentrated on burglary, extortion; strike-breaking, bootlegging, gambling and later established with others Murder, Inc., a group of hired killers who were contracted to murder those obstructing mob rackets. As a member of the national crime syndicate, Siegel was sent in 1937 to California to establish gambling operations. He built the first large gambling casino, the Flamingo, in Las Vegas, but when that operation proved unsuccessful and where the syndicate money that financed it spiraled upward into millions, which syndicate board members thought had been skimmed, Siegel was ordered murdered in 1947. The 1991 film Bugsy was based upon Siegel's infamous crime career.
