The Mob: From Hollywood to Vegas DVD Review

The Mob: From Hollywood to Vegas DVD Review

You can own this DVD today

Synopsis: The truth behind organized crime in America! Two documentary series combined for 20 hours of criminal entertainment!

The American Mob began at the turn of the 20th Century as immigrants from Europe began pouring into US cities. Poor and isolated, these immigrants banded together to develop a unique form of business called organized crime. This unique DVD collection features two documentary series focusing on The Mob's infiltration from the East to the West coast into the booming cities of Las Vegas, Nevada and Hollywood, California throughout the first half of the 20th century.

Las Vegas: The City The Mob Made - chronicles the untold history of this most American of cities...Las Vegas, the adult playground in the sun. Organized crime played out in Las Vegas differently than it did anywhere else in the country, and in the city that never sleeps, the organized crime syndicate realized that in Vegas, you can arrive as a nobody...and leave a King

Review: Who doesn't love the mob? This new DVD set from Mill Creek Entertainment gives us a fun documentary look at the history of the mob.  I find this to be far more fascinating than the sensationalized look we get in hollywood.

The documentary points out how the mob can move into a disadvantaged area and use that to control the residents and build its power.  It shows how the mob has been a legitimate business front and has built certain cities, like Vegas and Hollywood.  They've had their controlling hands dipped in so many things.

This new set is not only fun and interesting, but its only about $16 on Amazon right now!  Its ten hours of mob documentary!  Sure to make even the surliest of Soprano sing!
