  • The first truly in-depth look at the history of the mob in Hollywood from the 1920s to the 1980s when the last vestiges of mob influence were revealed through investigations of former SAG President Ronald Reagan and his union backers. From the time Harry Cohn of Columbia and Louis B. Mayer of MGM accepted financing from organized crime, the mob assault became increasingly intense and continuing into the 1980s when the major studios were no longer important, the independents were on the rise, and it was no longer possible to buy, bribe, or blackmail in a meaningful way. There were deals and bad guys, but the mob as it existed was finished in Hollywood.
