Daughter of Mobster Ben “Bugsy” Siegel Interview



Millicent Rosen, the daughter of mobster Ben “Bugsy” Siegel, gives her only U.S. television interview to Clark County Television (CCTV) in Las Vegas. Siegel opened the Flamingo Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip in 1946, bringing Hollywood glamour to the Western tourist town. His life after that was short-lived. This video is the full story that aired on CCTV during Clark County’s centennial in 2009, featuring other interviews and some intriguing Siegel home video and personal correspondence. Previously, we were only able to upload a 4-min. segment of the show. Enjoy!
