Storyline

Convicted gun runner, Las Vegas visionary, crusading newspaper publisher, target of the Watergate burglars, hero of Israel's War of Independence, these are only some the highlights of Hank Greenspun's remarkable life. A previously untold story of a genuine American hero. From his early days working for Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel, and his secret life in the underground Haganah, to his public battles with Senator Joseph McCarthy, bigoted casino owners, and the I.R.S., Hank Greenspun was fearless. Written by Scott Goldstein

Excellent
28 April 2009 | by DrLanceJacksonSee all my reviews

Well told story about an amazing human being. I wish there were more people like this man. A person who cared for what was right in this world. He fought corruption head on. I can not believe that Hank Greespun is not a household name. At one point, i felt like i was watching Forrest Gump. This man did so many spectacular things in life. The film was so well done. Even though it was a documentary, it never felt like it. Scott Goldstein did an amazing job of telling the story of this amazing man. The film quality was superb, excellent effects, the music score was emotional and the editing was spectacular. A heart warming, informative film that everyone should see. Must See.
