Bloodletters and Badmen: Casino Boss- Frank Lefty Rosenthal

Source:Bloodletters & Badmen– Casino boss Frank Lefty Rosenthal.

“Frank Lawrence “Lefty” Rosenthal was a professional sports bettor, former Las Vegas casino executive, and organized crime associate. The 1995 Martin Scorsese film Casino is based on his career in Las Vegas.”

From Bloodletters & Badmen

I don’t feel sorry for Frank Rosenthal at all. He knew the risks and consequences that could come from being a professional gambler who associates with mobsters. But I don’t see him as a big time criminal who is really dangerous and needs to be in prison for long periods of time.

I see Lefty as someone who was dumb enough to work for and go into business with casinos that were run by the Las Vegas mob. His job wasn’t illegal and what he probably did on the job running the casino he ran, probably wasn’t illegal. But he still chose to associate with criminals and work for their business’s, which is what got him kicked out of Las Vegas.

What Lefty should’ve been doing, was just be a professional gambler and make a lot of money from that. And run his own business. Stay way from Tony Splilotro and other mobsters. And run his own business and make millions from that. And he probably ends up retiring in Las Vegas or never gets to Las Vegas, because of the successful business he had in Miami.
