“Mob at the Movies” Now on Display at The Mob Museum in Las Vegas

"Mob at the Movies" Now on Display at The Mob Museum in Las Vegas
Now on display at The Mob Museum, the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, “Mob at the Movies” explores how organized crime has been portrayed in popular culture. Featuring artifacts from well-known movies and television shows, the exhibit demonstrates the history of Americans’ fascination with the Mob in popular culture (Pictured: First-edition “The Godfather” novel)

Among the artifacts, a 1952 poster from the film “The Captive City” featuring John Forsythe and Joan Camden is on display. This artifact has an interesting local connection–Senator Estes Kefauver, who held one of the 1950s U.S. Senate hearings into organized crime in the Museum’s courtroom, provided the epilogue to the film, which was filmed entirely in Reno.

Other artifacts on display include:

  • First-edition “The Godfather” novel.
  • Italian-language “The Godfather” movie poster signed by actors Al Pacino, Talia Shire, James Caan, Diane Keaton and Robert Duvall and director Francis Ford Coppola.
  • Original “The Godfather” film script with handwritten notes by the film’s special effects coordinator.
  • Screen-worn suit from the television show, “The Sopranos.”
  • Posters from Mob movies, movie lobby cards and more.

Admission to “Mob at the Movies” is free for Museum Members or with the price of regular admission. For more information about visiting The Mob Museum, click here or call (702) 229-2734.
