A David Mamet script, this HBO Original Movie is based on the story of Meyer Lansky, a young Jewish immigrant from Poland, who grew up on the hard impoverished streets of the Lower East Side of New York at the turn of the century and embarked on a life of crime. Lansky possessed an incredibly keen mind and shrewdness that he used to become involved with racketeering, bootlegging, gambling and organized crime.
