CHICAGO OUTFIT

TONY ACCARDO
"I have no control over anybody."

Boss of the Chicago mob until the late 40s. Owned Marilyn Monroe's entire career, and was the one that referred her to mob associate and Columbia Pictures studio boss, Harry Cohn. Basically this is the guy to thank for making Marilyn Monroe movie famous in the first place.

SAM GIANCANA
"The CIA and the Mafia are just different sides of the same coin."

Boss of the Chicago Outfit from the late 50s until the mid 60s. He was notorious for mingling with stars such as Marilyn Monroe. Also has a conspiracy theory going on about him to this day, about being the one to murder Marilyn with drugs, and framing her suicide. Was involved in the CIA's Castro assassination plot as well, along with fellow mobsters, Johnny Roselli, and Santo Trafficante, Jr.

MARILYN MONROE
"I want to be an artist, not an erotic freak. I don’t want to be sold to the public as a celluloid aphrodisiac."

Famous blonde bombshell of the 1950s & 60s, most famous for her role in 'Gentllemen Prefer Blondes'. Also a mob associate of the Chicago Outfit. She got her start with Harry Cohn, through the sponsor of the Chicago Outfit, although it was quite controversial. She was as much as a victim of the casting couch as Carmen was. She was also the one to warn her about the dark side of Hollywood.

JOHN ROSELLI
"In my business, we don't take notes."

Chicago Outfit mobster, and one of Tony's cronies. In fact, Tony was the one who got him to force their Hollywood studio puppet, Harry Cohn, to sign then-unknown Marilyn Monroe onto a blockbuster film deal. Also didn't know that he was duped by the CIA into their syndicated Mafia mission to assassinate Fidel Castro.

HARRY COHN
"The word 'gratitude' is not part of the Hollywood dictionary."
 

Head of Columbia Pictures, and mob associate of the Chicago Outfit. He was a complete, dirty bastard to Hollywood starlets such as Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, Joan Crawford, and Kim Novak. Notoriously known as 'King of the Casting Couch' due to his sexual harassment. Unfortunately, Carmen fell victim to this.

FRANK SINATRA
"You treat a lady like a dame, and a dame like a lady."

One of the best-known and best-loved Jazz singers in the history of American popular music. His music and voice are among the most recognizable in the world, and his work has been featured in numerous other media. Also has strong ties to several Mafia members, although it's impossible to say where the truth ends and fantasy begins. Rumor has it that the Johnny Fontaine character in The Godfather was based on Sinatra's mob troubles in securing his role From Here to Eternity.
