Jilly Rizzo


One of Frank Sinatra’s closest pallys was Ermenigildo “Jilly” Rizzo (May 6,1917-May 6-1992). His New York establishment (Jilly’s) was a landmark for years until it was finally torn down in the 1970’s. He was tragically killed in an auto accident by a drunk driver on his 75th birthday in 1992. Jilly’s most memorable screen appearance is probably The Manchurian Candidate (1962)
