The George Raft Story (22-Nov-1961)

Director: Joseph M. Newman

Writer: Crane Wilbur

Original Music and Adaptations: Jeff Alexander

Producer: Ben Schwalb

Keywords: Drama, Biography

George Raft gets involved with gangsters, moves to Hollywood where he lands a small parts and then a much bigger part in Scarface. A profligate lifestyle, the fall of Cuba in 1959, and his unfortunate past leave him near penniless. Wooden performances make this a disappointment.
