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

This film needs distribution
21 April 2010 | by wmcgu0808See all my reviews

I saw this film last night as the season grand finale of our film society, and it was worth the wait...but wait! At the end of the show we found out that the film does not have a distribution deal. After seeing this amazing, historically important, inspirational story (read the other reviews), imagine wanting to take your friends, parents, and children to this gem of a film only to be thwarted. I suggest we fight, just like Hank Greenspun, and get this film shown in theaters. Hank taught us the power of the word, so use letters to papers, reviews on websites, and lots and lots of words. See the film as soon as possible yourself, and if you can't, join in and agitate until it is available to you and anyone else who wants to see it in wide release.

I recommend the film to anyone who is interested in a broad range of topics, from early Israel, to Las Vegas, to Watergate, to Howard Hughes, to nuclear waste and storage in Nevada, to fighting for justice.
