Jim Smith, my father, was Mickey Cohen's right hand Man. When Mickey Cohen died my father took over most of Mickey's possessions. Mickey Cohen's appearance was very important to him. He spent a lot of his money on clothes and even his sleepwear. He had the best wardrobe money could buy and at one time he even owned his own clothing store.
Mickey Cohen was Ben "Bugsy" Siegel's right hand man. After Ben Siegel was knocked off by his Syndicate partners for skimming from the Flamingo, Mickey Cohen took over the mob's West Coast. He took over for Ben and was very successful. "I took over from Benny right away on instructions from the people back east," he said. "Naturally, I missed Benny, but to be honest with you, his getting knocked off was not a bad break for me. Pretty soon I was running everything out "Cohen's famous quote was "I never killed a man who didn't deserve it." Cohen hung around with all of the Top celebrities and political figures. He was very good friends with Frank Sinatra and the Rat pack. In January of 1972 Mickey was released from the Federal Penitentiary. Jim Smith picked him up from prison and was with him everyday for the rest of Mickey's life. Jim Smith is shown wearing the plaid jacket in the pictures below. This picture was taken from the book Mickey Cohen "In My Own Words"
Mickey also had more lives than a cat. Mickey Cohen was born a Leo. Cohen was shot at, bombed, arrested, imprisoned, threatened, and even hit in the head with a lead pipe by a crazed inmate while in jail. He was also involved in many legendary gun battle's such as the "War of the Sunset Strip." Mickey always came back for more. Mickey died of cancer in 1976 but in the end, he outlasted all of his enemies and was one of the most flamboyant and successful gangsters to ever live. He was just as famous as John Gotti or any other Mob figure. Be sure to check out the mob book "LIFE - Mobsters & Gangsters" While many gangsters are portrayed like Capone and Gotti it is Cohen who receives the biggest coverage with a 10 page spread.
