76: Mob

76: Mob

Sep 19, 1997
The mob as portrayed in movies, and as it is in real life. And its hold over us.
  • Susan Berman, author of the memoir Easy Street, the True Story of a Gangster's Daugher, reads from her book about her father Davie Berman, a Jewish gangster and one of the men — with Meyer Lansky and Bugsy Siegel — who created modern Las Vegas. (7 minutes)

    Act Two continues after the break. More from Susan Berman on her father, who was a cold-hearted mobster by day and a devoted family man at night, just like gangsters in movies like The Godfather. And Terasa, daughter of a New York mafia family. (13 minutes)ChildhoodCityCrimeDeathFamilyFathers
