Handsome Johnny


This title will ship upon release.

Johnny Rosselli's story is the stuff of a thousand pulp fictions, tabloid headlines and unsolved mysteries. He was the Mob's 'man in Hollywood,' and the last protUgU of Al Capone. In Handsome Johnny, Lee Server vividly brings to life a man who was involved with the right and wrong people in the powerful world of entertainment, from the glamorous to the business side. He was close with the likes of Frank Sinatra, Jean Harlow and Marilyn Monroe. Moving from Chicago in the '20's, to Hollywood in the '30's, Havana and Vegas in the '40's, and finally being forced to seek solace in Miami, Johnny Rosselli did not live a quiet life and with Server's creative non-fiction techniques, Handsome Johnny comes to life as vibrantly as the best fiction. From Rosselli's humble origins in Italy to his violent death in Miami some 70 years later, this is a great telling of the lesser known tale of one of America's most notorious gangsters.
