The history of the infamous Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach is fascinating. Mobsters, movie stars and and scandal helped the brilliant and ruthless hotelier Ben Novack Sr. propel his hotel onto the world stage, where it remains today. But the brutal murders of his ex-wife Bernice and son, Ben Jr. rocked America and the squabble over the Novack fortune is still winding through the Florida probate courts to this day.
