Biography: Frank Costello - Prime Minister of the Mob
This video presents the story of one of the most notorious racketeers in the country. As boss of New York City's first family of crime, Frank Costello controlled the politicians in Tammany Hall and the boroughs. Archival film footage, photographs, news stories, personal accounts, and the opinions of historians give the viewer an in-depth look at this complex man. Costello did not like the legacy of guns and violence of the mobsters, and worked to legitimize mob activities by branching out into legal business activities, a tactic still used by organized crime today. But his paper trail did not escape the notice of the congressional committee, whose investigation ended his career. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
