Another one from the same guy who did the Colombo documentary. This should be good. Right around the time Bruno was killed and people were getting bombed left and right.

Awful disco music? That's George Benson. Nothing awful about it. I thought it was going to be some generic disco score like the one that played throughout The Death Collector.

The George Benson tune was actually perfect. Put us right in that place and time. Phily in the late '70s. (technically 1980). Going from that song to the funeral gatherers was good documentary work.

Great stuff. And as the church bells were ringing too. Almost straight out of the Godfather.

Is nephew Mike Grasso was involved. He and his family are legit now and have a mini real Estate empire in Philly. His son-in-law Ralph And Orlando’s Puppo were involved but associates. Didn’t hear much from them after Ange was killed though.

Johnny "keys" Simone was his cousin as was Carl "pappy" Ippolito....everyone notice Jerry "the geator" Blavat as the MC, telling cameras to respect the family & get down..get down.

So many associates were under Bruno and were flying under the radar of his underbosses skippers ect. that after he was killed many many went legitimate , must of been nice to have the backing of a boss all those years and the boss never put it on record for the family after him .

I guess he had nobody really looking over his shoulder all those years and hundreds of associates thankful that they never got a knock from a underboss or new boss .

What was strange was some made guys really expected to not have to pay up and fall in-line ever ! And we know many of them are dead .

But so so many small fortunes have been made form guys that were tight with Bruno but never made and never on record very unusual for a Sicilian boss.
