Noted bookie-turned-Las Vegas Casino owner/manager/executive best remembered for punching Frank Sinatra's in the face at The Sands Hotel in 1967. A belligerent Sinatra had gotten tough and was yelling threateningly at Cohen because he was denied casino credit - unaware of new casino rules in effect. The Sands was known as the "playpen" of the "Rat Pack" and Sinatra was a longtime Sands attraction at the time of the incident. Within a week Sinatra took his show to Caesar's Palace. Cohen later became a vice-president at both the Sands and MGM Grand hotels.
Father of actor Corey Allen. Another son, Stephen Cohen, was a filmmaker.
