With the 1st anniversary of the release of the film The Milwaukee Mob our documentary on the last and most powerful leader of that group , Frank Balistrieri coming up in January 2019 the Editor Jason Love and I, are planing to to a Director’s Cut of the film.
This film would include footage not used in the first release as well add more on the famous underrated Milwaukee Phil : Felix Alderisio.
As Milwaukee was under the oversight of the Outfit, I see that doing an Editor’s cut under the Chicago Outfit Blood in the Streets brand fits well.
Mr. Love and I thought the story of Milwaukee Phil is interesting, needed to be brought up in the context of an Editor’s Cut.
This project should be done if funding allows early Spring of 2019.
On the heels of the documentary The Milwaukee Mob, where we looked at Frank Balistrieri, the last major Boss of the Mafia, this film Frank Balistrieri, Goes To Vegas will look at what we here feel is the misunderstood story of Balistriri role in the Mafia’s getting into the financing of Casinos in Vegas.
What role did Frank B play in the idea of major mob influenced investing in Vegas casinos ?
Who did Frank B use as sources of money for this investment ?
How did the Mafia work behind the scenes to protect and profit from this investment ?
How did this fall apart ?
What happened to the major players ?
This film will be a feature and be shared with interested parties via VOD outlets or Cable stations. “DVD’s” with bonius content will be offered to be purchased.
