A dialogue from bigmikecraft, Meyer Lansky's last enforcer. A new movie is being filmed in Saratoga in 2011 and a short for the Providence Film Festival this summer. I was inducted into the Lansky Group in 1968 because my father worked for the syndicate fixing trials thru-out New York State. My father was the Honorable William A. Craft, of Solomon, Kirwin, and Craft. They were not lawyers, they were Supreme Court Reporters, and were the bag men for both the Republican Party, and The Democratic Party. I became Meyer's Last Enforcer because My father did his job for the organization and I was an only child, therefore no threat. I was a millionaire by the age of 25. I was broke 4 times and kept starting over! I owned many nite-clubs in N.Y. which are all registered to me via the N.Y.S. Liquor Authority. I had the contracts to kill Pierre Trudeau of Canada, and Fidel Castro of Cuba, in 1974.

I shall explain them in blogs on this web site. I was forced to save Richard Nixons life after Meyer put out a hit on him in the fall of 1974. I have been in many newspapers and have had to fight the FBI for years until they finally kept me from being printed in the Enquirer o9n the Toronto Star's Article on my contract to hit "Pierre Trudeau, and Fidel Castro in 1974! The article was printed on January 3rd, 2008. The new movie, "Woodstock Melody, "The Real Crime Story" which stars Ben Gleib of the Chelsey Handler Show and is "Esquire Magazines "Comic of the Next 10 years"is a great Real Action Film! Ben plays the eldest son to the Upstate New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire Mob Boss! The iconic actor Fred "The Hammer" Williamson will play a gambler who works for the Boss with the great actress from "The Dallas Television Series" Audrey Landers playing the Bosses long term wife! Audrey is wonderful! The Emmy Award winner Ken Kercheval, "Cliff Barnes" on Dallas, will play the part of the last of the real old time mob bosses still active! Ken is perfect for the part. A new comer "Lena Chase from Smooth Magazine, will play the girlfriend of the big boss! It is a great cast and wait and see the final shoot, live right here on !
