Podcast X: Sam and Dr. Kaplan's son and Hymie Frohmer

To start with, my suspicions were correct-Sam does have a checkered past and it has nothing to do with triple jumps. My assistant David Preiver went to the Police Archives and found this line up photo of Sam with his posse-mates, Louis Lepke and Bugsy Siegel. BTW, the real Bugsy has a memorial plaque with his name at the Bialystoker Synagogue. The photo collage also shows the actor Marvin Kaplan (he's still alive) and 167 Rivington Street where there used to be a photographer's studio and perhaps Hymie Frohmer's National Radio. Sam Part 4
