Was Gary Devore's Death the First Proven State Sponsored Killing?
"So basically this detective puts on a bunch of scuba gear and goes into this aqueduct with about 15 feet of water. And he finds the truck, he finds it. He locates it and says, I got him. You know, but there's no laptop and the skeleton in the car, which was Gary devore, has no hands. And in addition to having no hands, there are a lot of other things about this official report that were suspicious because now the police and the sheriff's department took over with reporting on this. His laptop, which contained the script called the big steel, and his gun, which he always carried, they were missing. And by the way, the aqueduct was searched extensively during the initial disappearance and they had no success, and it showed no signs of impact. And for the official account to work, Gary devore would have had to have driven three miles against traffic without being seen. And also, by the way, let's not forget this. His lights weren't on. So the drive would have been in complete darkness. For three miles, going against the grain of traffic. And according to a Hollywood investigative reporter, Donald crutchfield, who worked for many famous people like Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, Marlon Brando. He said, evil knievel on his best night couldn't do this. So I know this all seems unbelievable. But that's exactly why doctor Alfred spent almost ten years investigating whether somebody or some organization had Gary devore killed. It's very difficult to actually prove something happened like a murder, but you can prove that something didn't happen like an impossible accident. How can you possibly turn around on a freeway and drive three miles against traffic with your lights off? If those facts are accurate and a bunch of experts say it would not have been possible, then you got to go so far as to say, you know, you've proven the first state sponsored killing in the United States. And therefore, the murder had to have been a cover up and our government kept it secret.

Was Frank Sinatra a Failure? 'Sinatra: The Life' Authors Tell Us
"And I have the co authors of this major new biography of Frank Sinatra. It's called Sinatra the life. Anthony summers and Robin swan. You have a quote in your book that I'll read to you from George Fraser, the legendary Boston Globe critic. He set the Frank Sinatra directly all your life you wanted to be a big man, but the wrong kind of big man, you're a sad case, Frankie, I think you're the best male vocalist that ever lived, but I also think you're a miserable failure as a human being. Was that accurate or exaggerated? It was certainly tough from the hip, you can't as a biographer. I mean, we really work at this and we work to try and get as far as one can humanly into the person and the personality and the suffering and the joys of the person that we're studying. And this was a guy who we ended up liking in spite of and that's a very big in spite of in spite of his involvement with the mob, I think you must ask her, but I think my course of Robin as a woman liked him as a person in spite of his pretty savage treatment of many of the women that he knew and the women that we interviewed and we were lucky enough to talk to now that he's gone. He's been gone almost exactly 7 years to talk to a number of the women that he knew for significant periods of his life. And almost to a woman they spoke of him in spite of the way he'd sometimes treated them. He spoke of they spoke of him with lasting affection. This is a guy who had something very, very positive and yet could be a really unpleasant person.

I finally worked out my own definition of great art, music, or any other art. And that is that it will endure over generations there are two and that it endures in repeated hearings for any given listener. Will Frank Sinatra endure, I think we think so, would you agree Robin? Absolutely. I think we think so and a measure of it perhaps is in sheer longevity and endurance as a test, we worked on this book so not for the life for the past four years. And when I say work, I mean sort of 8 days a week. And that meant that 8 days a week and often far into the night, we both played Sinatra. We have two because we were writing his life.

"That is such a great song. I love it. It's Really, I was first introduced to the song you know probably much. But My. Actual memory of being introduced to the song was my best friend's wedding. Wasn't this version specifically. They never actually played. But the the band plays it and they play like an interlude in film. I don't think they actually have the vocals or anywhere in the movie until the wedding scene Ruben I could be wrong. Well, as I said earlier, this has been done and well by many artists frank was not the I certainly won't be the last just his version and so just I think it it embodies everything that's on is and he hits the nail right on the head. When. Alex the late sixties nineteen, sixty, six, where Sinatra Assan to marry again this time at eight fifty he married at twenty one year old actress named Mia Farrow. In fact at the wedding is good friend. Dean Martin Fulton aside and said Frank I got scotch older than this kid. Comedy to last. So this union predictably did not test you know pass the test of time. Frank wanted me to quit acting and just stay home and MIA did not want to do that because she was actually wising to prominence as an actress, a nineteen, sixty eight. The starring role in Rosemary's baby for most notable solicited probably actually one of my favorite horror films of all time. I. Really Love the horror epic films like the shining and Rosemary's baby things and she tastic in it but you could actually see the change in her physicality because Can i? Can I say as far will let me get to Capitol Hill, say that their marriage did not was very rocky. From the start and Rosemary's baby was kind of the breaking point because again frank never wanted her to do the movie to begin with. So she goes a the film and it kept getting extended and extended running over schedule. So it just got to you know boiling point and then ultimately happened they'll be well I mean what's interesting is a Rosemary's baby just a look back on the film was considered a curse film. it was going to the Dakota which we all know was where while the exteriors were filmed at the Dakota, which is where John Lennon was assassinated but he served her divorce papers on set. Frank, apparently made multiple appearances onset including one to issue her papers finalizing the divorce. Yeah. And of course, you know it was directed by Roman Polanski who the next year would suffer a great loss in his life. He was mired in his own controversy which we've talked about. In our Brian Wilson episodes. So their marriage didn't even last two years. It was closed out in sixty eight with the final presentation of said divorce papers and frank did what he did. He just went back to work. You know he had chart-topping successes throughout the late sixties including strangers in the night perhaps his most notable. Bats life in nineteen, sixty, seven in the ultimate Sinatra anthem in nineteen, sixty nine, which was my way as a decade went on though his output was hindered. This one of the reasons was because people as you point out, Tj were into rock, and now we were getting into sort of counterculture sixties, movement AK, the woodstock generation in they really weren't subscribing to Sinatra stock market. Another thing that was happening was his voice starting to get worn out yet again. Due. To as one reporter, put it chronic years of abuse from cigarettes alcohol. Weird though in effect your voice. Yeah. Yeah. So I want to do the musical Cuban in a moment I'm going to table with a little bit by one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, nine, the musical. Meta, had changed and Sinatra was basically left on his own. He even said nobody's writing songs for me anymore. He was still cool by the Vegas. Standard, and was sort of the know middle-age version of what it meant to be. Cool. But now you have this up coming hippie culture which is moving against that And again, at sixty sort of closed out, Sinatra felt a bit out of place. He announced retirement in nineteen seventy one he said I'm officially retiring. That's it. I'm done but diff- retirement only lasted two years by nineteen seventy-three. He was back in the studio and here's recording again and he's trying to rehabilitate his voice in that time in Nineteen seventy-three Sinatra Meta woman who would become his fourth and final spouse and he actually met her through in mutual connection Barbara Marx Blakely was a former model Las Vegas showgirl, and if he can't get by last name was married to Zippo marks. And so Naro of course, man about the show Biz business I think he was the Kevin Bacon of his time suzy can have anybody for Frank Sinatra. So he was actually friends with both Barbara ends up and there was an understood chemistry between them but they refrained they remained friends until ultimately Barbara, left Zippo to be with Frank. That was around ninety S. I know right. And Frank was needed to say reluctant to get married but. As Barbara put in an interview later that she basically said marry. Mir on walking. So it wasn't ultimatum and they married in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, six. She was forty nine at the time Frank Sinatra was sixties. There's hope for me Ginseng apples still I would say that there is yeah. So I do want to point out one thing before we do our musical interlude here that a notable guests that this wedding took a break from his campaigning and that was a former president Ronald Reagan. Reagan now. He showed up. which we figured out that rate you what was the the little piece of Trivia that you gave us TJ will shoot up in our day. Martin. Episode there were two inaugurals at which Frank Sinatra performed. We've already discussed one of them. That being. John F Kennedy's, and then at Ronald Reagan's and what's interesting to happen is he felt so burned by the Kennedy ministration that he basically switched political affiliation started backing the Republican horse when I also figure that they're they're probably had been some association along at the years since Ronald Reagan had had previously been an actor. Yes absolutely again, they knew each other through Hollywood and when it came time to endorse that the North Reagan's a candidate frank was happy to. Because again he felt so jaded by what happened with him the Kennedys. So I think it's a good time to interject another song here that sums up everything frank has gone through up until this point the ups the downs, the changes. As he says in the song, you know ride high in April shot down in May and that is from his nineteen sixty, seven classic. That's.

"The Jackal slash water. Like Dean said like Sinatra Loves Jack Daniels in his Song I love. Vegas. You can also order this drink my recommendation be the way my friends. Scott. Doesn't he walks up to the bar and says Jack on the rocks punch in the face. That's alternative to which he did many times in Las Vegas, which is also relevant to frank 'cause we're GONNA get to that. Now understand my perspective here I said, this was a close to home episode for me because I am from the Great State of New Jersey. And in New Jersey there are two people you have to like they are responding. So springsteen and frank. Sinatra. Not Tara Reid you're okay if you don't like but Bruce and frank you half the like. Even if you don't like them, you would never say that you would say it in private you would never say in public you would just not admit it. So. I was lucky to grow up in household debt embraced Frank Sinatra? My Great Uncle Charlie. Actually introduced me to frank because when we would visit him, he would play Sinatra on vinyl. Cute. It's what I was. Convinced Twenty, four seven. It's all that ever played by Uncle Charlie's house. So I had an early exposure to this and I have to agree. I don't think we can be as cool as Frank Sinatra. However, we can look at that picture and say, okay, how do you become that? Cool. So. How do you get to that point and that's what I'm GonNa look at today. We're going to dive into the life of the man we know as the voice old blue is the chairman of the board and of course. BOGANS native son. Francis Albert Sinatra. He was born. Thirty nine years after what I'm about to tell you usually don't do a rewind here, but I think it's important to understand frank to understand his upbringing on the context of that. So we're going to rewind eighteen, seventy six. For Mel, a veil in a contract that we know so well. Yes. Wow. So yeah yesterday mirror song it. Yeah, WE'VE MAGDA REVERSE river is a river. was actually do not able to cover on this podcast. Yes. So from eighteen seventy, six to eighteen ninety, four more than seven point six million. Italian. Immigrants made their way to the US. is now here's crazy. From Eighteen, ninety, one to nineteen fifteen the Italians were the largest group to immigrate to the United States. The other two were actually Ireland and Germany. But Italy was number one with a bullet and this actually led to a burst in the italian-born populations specifically in New Jersey. In fact, this number from nineteen hundred to Nineteen Tan. Rose to seventy three thousand. American born Italians in New Jersey alone. I'll And this is, of course, the area that Sinatra grew up in places like owning city Jersey City North Bergen hoboken were densely populated and sort of separated and you had these Italian never springing up from these are numbers of immigrants that were coming over by nineteen twenty four. The Italian population was solidified is the largest foreign born group in the entire state while yes. And it was this wool that came over from Italy that included a large percentage of unskilled laborers. In fact, at of those came from southern Italy Sicily lower end of the country over eighty percent of them were entirely unskilled and half of them were completely illiterate, which means they didn't speak English, but they also couldn't even write. Italian. Awhile you these were people that were pretty hard precedent got the state just to grab whatever they could and part of this group was worse Francesco and rose semestral. Who emigrated from the province of Palermo in Nineteen Oh three and brought their family which included five. One of which was Anthony Martin. Semester. See You may be sitting here. Going will want early you telling me about these semester. Reason is the name upon arrival to the US was changed to Sinatra. So the interesting part about this is no one really knows why does happen one theory is that it was a movement at Ellis Island because even in some cases. A chain deal on the spot where even changed in error by the clerk and it just kind of kept. But it's important to note that the semestral name. was that of Frank Father Anthony Martin. Now, there's another more. Shall we say insidious reason for that and if we go over to the province of Palermo, we look at a small village called Macara afraid which was a birthplace of one known as Salvador. Lucciano. But I. Think you. Know him better by Moniker lucky I believe I'll be is one of your favorites. Figures in organized crime now yes. So lucky was born in the same village as the semester family. Luciano's lived on the same street as the semester, a family, and they both left Italy for the US and Nineteen Oh. Free. Okay. Can I just point out like through all of this like mom stuff That our cat lefty who we are convinced is the reincarnation of a mob boss who never comes in here when we're recording is now sitting with rapt attention do looks like the Godfather right now. Yeah. I feel like I should be in his lap and he's telling me. and. I bring this up to sort of address the elephant in the room I don't think you can mention Frank Sinatra without mentioning. The America. and. You. Know for me unhealthy knows this one of my passions is studying history of the Mafia. And learning about this. So to me, it was very fascinating when I saw that they came over in the same year from the same village. As we go forward, there's a lot of supporting theories that lead to the idea that lucky would Yana was sort of an ever present spectre in France life in career they as I was gonNA say they provided excellent sanitation services I don't know what About. Them as a thing that would intrigue you. Well, there's much to be intrigued about In fact, one of Sinatra's contemporaries a singer by the name of Al Martino. Many people know him best as role as Johnny Fontaine. Godfather. Zeno. In an interview with entertainment Martinez said something to the effect of paraphrase here that interaction with figures in the mob was unavoidable. We were singers we worked in nightclubs, bars, casinos we got contracts with record labels who owned all of those entities amok was the mafia, the mob, and so frank actually corroborates later in life he doesn't intervene. He says a lot of guys were around that had come out of the prohibition era and ran pretty good saloons. I worked in places that were open they said don't know they paid they came backstage. They said, hello, they offered you a drink if Saint Francis. Of. Assisi was a singer at work in saloons. He would've met the same guys at doesn't make him art in anything now this came doug inference an opera. So please them as we go forward I'm not claiming anything a lot of this has been refuted by not only Sinatra parties on both sides their biographies have conflicting views on this. So all I'm telling you what I uncovered in my research. So let's get back to of that name semester. Oh, that's just I mean. Basically,.
