Titanic Thompson : The Man Who Bet on Everything, Paperback / softback Book

Titanic Thompson : The Man Who Bet on Everything Paperback / softback

Description

Titanic Thompson is the rollicking true story of one of the most charismatic characters in twentieth-century America.

Travelling only with his golf clubs, a .45 revolver, and a suitcase full of cash, this is the legendary tale of a man who was married five times to five different girls, all teenagers on their wedding day.

He killed five men, though he'd say `they'd all agree they had it coming to them'.

He won and lost millions in a time when being a millionaire still really meant something. Filled with fascinating facts and famous faces - Harry Houdini, Al Capone, Lee Trevino, Arnold Rothstein and Jean Harlow all make appearances - this is a brilliant and compelling snapshot of life on the road in freewheelin' America.
