Nick Civella and Frank “Lefty” Rosenthal

Zemanta Related Posts ThumbnailIn the late 1970s, the Nevada Attorney General Bob List has filed  an action to ban Lefty from working at the Stadust. Mr. List is running for governor and Lefty Rosenthal has come up with a blackmail plan to get him to stop his action against Lefty. Joe Agosto has advised Carl “Tuffy” DeLuna of this plan. In this excerpt from the microphone in the Quinn & Peebles office, Tuffy tells Nick about the plan. Nick’s reaction shows he is not just an old gangster in modern times. A few days later Nick will get Lefty on the phone and tell him to “cool it, just cool it.”

In a modern twist, the daughter of a deceased Nevada Gaming Investigator, Dennis Gomes, has written a book that contains an account of Mr. Gomes investigation of the Stardust. Jane Morrison of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that this book cast allegations that Mr. List may have acted improperly in his investigation of the Stardust.

The F.B.I. investigation failed to uncover any malfeasance on the part of Bob List.

    Lefty had influence at the Dunes too. He was the character that Robert DeNiro was based on in the movie Casino. Lot of true information in that movie. “Lefty” was the best sports oddsmaker.Hell think he lived to just recently and died in Florida a few years back
