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 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

A great documentary of one man who made a difference
14 March 2010 | by Bruce767See all my reviews

Where I Stand is an extremely well done documentary that should get wide distribution. The documentary profiles Hank Greenspun, who took on the mob, Joe McCarthy and the IRS. Greenspun is not well known outside of Las Vegas, but should be. The Director, Scott Goldstein, used archival footage, including some that had been stored out in the Nevada desert, to bring Hank Greenspun to life. Goldstein used Anthony Hopkins to narrate as if Greenspun were still alive, telling the story in the first person. From the opening clicks of the typewriter to the final chapter in the story, I was enthralled. Where I Stand is a winner of a documentary.
