THE MAFIA & THE INEVITABLE QUESTION, “WAS FRANK SINATRA IN THE MAFIA ?”
This talk recaps the origins of the Mafia and how it took root in America during the early 20th century and the fight for supremacy amongst the 5 New York Mafia crime families. The Mob used Hollywood Stars like George Raft and Frank Sinatra to entice ‘high-rollers’ into their casinos in Atlantic City, Las Vegas, Cuba and London. The Mafia loved Sinatra and he was very, very close to them which raises the Question, “was Frank Sinatra a ‘Made’ man in the Mafia ?”.
