Sammy Reni was a thug working for a gangster named Praisewater. But 'Mr. Lucky' made short work of him when Sammy and his brother stormed the Fortuna II in order to grab mob accountant Bugsy McKenna.
Years later, Jesse would be "immortalized" by photographer Felix Unger ("Portraits A Specialty") in a calypso song:
Jesse thought Felix was Harry Belafonte......
- 'Mr. Lucky' - "Bugsy"
- 'The Odd Couple' - "Felix The Calypso Singer"
Both roles were played by Jack Perkins.....
