bugsy wasn't only 'an original owner of a casino'. he started vegas!! and it killed him (his ambition, and owing money to meyer lansky, also of the mob). they thought they had him on a leash, yet he was not the leashable kind. but we all die, don't we? some, more violently than others.....Annette bening hits just the right notes, here, and you can never forget who the director is, while you are watching. I found myself wishing that mr. beatty had also made a bio-pic of Jacob Rubenstein.

Warren Beatty is so good as Bugsy Siegel, one of the original owners of a casino in Las Vegas. The town was wide open and trouble was right behind the corner. Busy lived and played hard, and soon he had many enemies. There is so very violent scenes in the movie, so it probably won't be good for young children.
