A daring aviator, movie mogul, risk-taker, and business tycoon, Kirk Kerkorian (1917-2015) transformed Las Vegas and Hollywood to become one of the leading financiers in American business. Here William Rempel recounts how Kerkorian improbably rose from being an Armenian boy selling newspapers on the streets of 1920s Los Angeles to a spot on Forbes' list as California's richest man, a humble and intensely private individual who nonetheless rubbed elbows with Howard Hughes, Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Elvis Presley, Mike Tyson, and Andre Agassi.
