The Three Tenors are out. What's in? The Three Mobsters (pictured above bottom: William "Slick" Hanner, top left: Frank Cullotta and right: Henry Hill with actor Ray Liotta) who begin a major drive to promote their riveting books plus the controversial Mob Museum set to open in Las Vegas.
In 1982, Frank Cullotta and mob enforcer Tony Spilotro (Frank's boss), had a falling out that resulted in Frank rolling and becoming a government witness. His testimony was instrumental in putting a number of mobsters behind bars and causing the Outfit to lose its control over Las Vegas. Although the mob issued a contract on his life, Frank survived his time in prison and the Witness Protection Program.
William "Slick" Hanner also hung with Tony Spilotro in Las Vegas during the years Slick was juiced in as a blackjack dealer at the Stardust. The pair had a deal going when Spilotro was to return from a routine trip to Chicago. But Tony never returned. Instead his body turned up in a shallow Indiana grave. Slick also knew who really killed Marilyn Monroe and the details of her death when folks were still wondering if she committed suicide. "Absolutely not," counters Slick. "It was a mob hit and I know the guy who did it."
