Back in the day, this A+ list mobster backed a number of clubs on the Sunset Strip.
Actors wanted to be seen in these clubs which then brought in more people and higher profits for the owners and their “backers.”
Anyway, the girlfriend of our mobster who is in the history books right alongside him got into a fight with another woman when she found out he was also sleeping with the mobster. How did she find out?
At the next table, the woman was talking to this permanent A+ list mostly movie actor with the consecutive alphabet thing going for his name.
He said he was open to taking her home that night but wouldn’t the mobster get mad because he had seen them together.
Well, that brought the mobster’s girlfriend over the banquette seat and threw a couple punches before some patrons broke it up.
The actor for his part got a raw egg thrown on him by the mistress because the actor did not come to her defense.
My question has always been where did the raw egg come from?
A+ list mobster: Bugsy Siegel
Girlfriend: Virginia Hill
Other woman: Toby Tuttle
A+ list actor: Errol Flynn
Egged by the mob
Dear fellow Flynn fans,
on April the 24th in 1944 at the Mocambo Nightclub Errol narrowly escaped an assassination attempt by the mafia. But it was not his life that was in danger, but rather his fair hair.
He became involved in a ladies`wrestling match between casino society member Virginia Hill and showgirl singer Toby Tuttle. It is not entirely clear what and who started the socialte scuffle, but somehow Flynn got between the lines of fire. An egg was thrown at our Hollywood hero and hit him bullseye on the head. Later one of them ready to hitwomen would say that was because he wasn´t galantly stepping up for her after a crude remark from the other fighting hen. Another source stated it was for his grinning and watching appreciatively while sport commentating the scene to his pest pal Freddie McEvoy.
Now while some papers spotted Miss Tuttle as the perpetratorette, others held Miss Hill responsible. She of course was “Bugsy`s girl”. Not Bugsy Malone, mind you, but Benjamin Siegel, jewish mobster debonaire, the founder of Murder Inc. and the builder of the Las Vegas Flamingo Casino Hotel. – Read more here
