... Anyone interested in owning a piece of Las Vegas mob history might want to pony up for Frank "Lefty" Rosenthal's old house. The 3,266-square-foot domicile is located on the golf course at the Las Vegas Country Club. It features three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a two-car garage and "an awesome floorplan, incredible upgrades and a huge pool." This is the house where Lefty lived with wife, Geri, during the troubled years detailed in the hit film Casino. (Lefty survived a car bombing incident and moved to Florida several years ago. Geri died of a drug overdose in California.) The place is a steal at only $499,000. Local real estate agent Tracey Donley is handling the property.
