Perhaps the most (in)famous of 20th Century mobsters, Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel lived an outsized life and died an outsized death. He terrorized and extorted immigrant pushcart vendors as a 14-year-old gang leader; a little over a decade later, he became a principal in Murder Inc., the enforcement arm of the multi-ethnic mobster coalition known as the Syndicate. As the Syndicate’s representative in Los Angeles in the 1930's, he socialized with movie idols like Clark Gable, Jean Harlow and Gary Cooper; he romanced beautiful starlets while still married to his childhood sweetheart. He was the mob’s lead man in developing Las Vegas as a gambling mecca, and set the standard for its lavish hotels. And he was killed in spectacularly gruesome fashion, hit by a barrage of gunfire while sitting in his girlfriend’s living room.
