Fugazy Hood Flops in Hollywood


John Di Mattia was a dismal failure as a mobster. He roared like a lion, but he was really as meek as a mouse. John was tall and rugged looking too, but then again, so was Rock Hudson. DiMattia was asked to prove his mob mettle on a hit and he faked a heart attack to get out of it. He used a bad back too. His back went out more than he did. Mobsters that worked with John DiMattia had this to say ," to get out of doing any tough guy work, this bum came up with more excuses than "alibi Ike".
