Who can be romantically linked to Desi Arnaz...and how closely?

(e.g. Desi Arnaz)

(e.g. Kevin Bacon)

 

According to Mafia boss turned government informant Jimmy "The Weasel" Fratianno in his book "The Last Mafioso", several top members of the Chicago Mafia family were furious about the portrayal of Italians in general and the Mafia in particular in "The Untouchables" (1959), of which Arnaz was executive producer, and put out a contract on his life. Several mob hitmen hid in the bushes and behind trees outside his house one night after having been tipped off that he was on his way home and were going to shoot him when he pulled into his driveway, but for some unknown reason Arnaz never came home that night. The killers were supposed to come back again and wait for him the next night, but in the meantime cooler heads prevailed and the murder plot was called off. Arnaz apparently never found out how close he came to being murdered.

 

Ashes were scattered at sea.

 

Good things do not come easy. The road is lined with pitfalls.

 

American people have the ability to laugh at themselves. It is one of the things that makes this country the great country that it is.
