Allen Glick was the inspiration for the documentary film "Mob on the Run" (watch below)

Glick, a one-time attorney, had as his right man at the casinos a convicted sports fixer with lifelong mob ties.  That man was none other than the notorious Frank "Lefty" Rosenthal.

George Knapp, reporting for Oklahoma's KFOR news, writes:

In reality though, Rosenthal didn’t report to Glick. He reported directly to the head of the Chicago outfit, as detailed in a groundbreaking 1987 television documentary “Mob on the Run”. The original “Mob on the Run” documentary was produced by former KLAS-TV investigative reporter Ned Day and former KLAS-TV news director Bob Stoldal.

Glick, who was never charged for his dealings with the Mob, died in his San Diego home of cancer.
