Bugsy by Barry Levinson ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
If he hadn't been a gangster, he might have been honored on a postage stamp, as the Father of Las Vegas. When Benjamin 'Bugsy' Siegel ventured west with some of the Eastern mob's investment funds in the early 1940s, he fell in love with the movies, and a feisty moll named Virginia Hill. Siegel had a vision, which gave rise to an historic plan to transform Las Vegas from a sleepy, sand-choked backwater into an international entertainment Mecca. Nobody shared his vision, but he knew that if he built it, they would come. He built it with other people's money, dangerous people like Meyer Lansky, Moe Green, and Charlie Luciano. While creating this seductive vision, he became so obsessed with it that he was rubbed out before he could see the modern city that sprang from his dream. In their posh Vegas boardrooms, though, the mobsters made out like bandits

All you need is love ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We turn our attention to the end of the sixties; a time when there was dissent and war in the world and the chaos was reflected in the music with bands splitting up and moving on. The sixties began, according to Eric Burdon as 'a party'. 'The aim of all of us, Hendrix, The Who, The Stones'. Unfortunately, the party went sour. After the death of Epstein, the Beatles quarreled and split up. This episode shows the other side of the carefree sixties

Told by a dazzling chorus of more than a hundred voices - from Keith Richards, Jerry Garcia, Ken Kesey, and Eric Clapton to managers, agents, headwaiters, and, above all, the man himself - Bill Graham Presents offers fascinating firsthand accounts of how Graham launched stars like Janis Joplin, Otis Redding, the Jefferson Airplane, and the Grateful Dead; how he produced landmark tours for Bob Dylan and the Band, and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young; and how his ardent concern for music as a positive social force brought live American rock to the Soviet Union for the first time and was a driving force behind standard-setting benefits like Live Aid and the Amnesty International "Conspiracy of Hope" tour
