In the movie "CASINO", Why did they never say the word Chicago? The talked about Kansas City, but never said Chicago, and they were Chicago mobsters.
Didn't Spilotro go to Steinmetz High School. They say he grew up on the near west side, Grand and Noble area but Steinmetz is a long way away from there.
He must of come from Grand and Harlem area.
Anyone know?

How Could This Spilotro Make a Comment about Monsters taking His Monster Brother's Lives, When His Brothers took the Lives of Innocent persons that were not Monsters like they were, his brothers were scum of the earth, that what theydished out, and got away from Justice the easy way By getting Murdered, Should Take persons Like the Murdered Spilotro Brothers, and Chain them Up to Basement Floors, and Give them enough food and water to survive, and live the rest of there lives suffering, like the pain they brought up-on Innocent families, that were Not Mobsters or related to them by taking there lives or victimizing them in their usual ways.

YOu couldnt be more wrong. I've known Pat and his family for years and know exactly 2 people who would take the shirt off his back to help somone even if he he didnt know them. Pat Spilotro is one of those people. NOTHING like his brother Tony.

Pat Spilotro is a goof. His brother Tony was worst then the guys who killed him. They should line up all the widows and kids from his brothers murders and let Pat look at them in the eye.I wonder if Pat would even be in court if this trial was for Tony if he would have lived to be tried. Then Michael's goofy wife who went to the outfit when she didn't like the deal she got from Hogies Pub and complaines she didn't get enough money. Anybody familar with the West side in the 70's and 80's never liked any of the Spilotros and it sounds like Pat is as big a a--hole as his brothers were.

These guys are all dirtbags, leaches on others backs. Charge working folks protection money to protect them from them. And these are the typical dago role models?

Tony Spilotro lived just south of Grand Avenue, between, Austin and Narragansett. I think it was Melvina Avenue. That is in the Steinmetz High School area.

Casino was based on Spilotro. His boyhood friend and one of his partners in crime, Frankie Cullota, was a technical adviser and actually appeared in Casino. All while he was in the witness protection program!!! Kansas City was the drop point for the casino "skim".

I saw Conrad at Hogie's Pub several times. Anytime you saw his Rolls parked in front he was there. When the boys wanted something different they would walk west to the Onion Roll on the Oak Park side of North Ave. Frank hung out at Slicker Sams north of the Come Back Inn in Melrose Park off Lake St.
The Rolls Royce didn't belong to Robert Conrad. It belonged to another guy in the construction business who is long dead. He was named as an un-indicted co-conspirator in a criminal case after his death from natural causes and after his business partner was murdered by the "outfit".

I served on the grand jury that investigated Pullia's disappearance. He had a wife and a girlfriend, but no kids. BTW, by the time my jury duty was over, I knew the 5th amendment by heart, from having heard it so many times. I learned more about the case from the speculation in the papers than what was said in the grand jury room.

Impossible. Sal Pullia did not have any children, so you did not go to school with his daughter. It's really a shame to see such false rumors [of where his body is] perpetuated here.
