I Want to Be a Killer

Look at this guy, he is Conrad Hilton Sr.  He is a killer. Can you see it in his eyes?

He started from nothing and built a chain of hotels “Hilton”, but all along he wanted one thing and only one thing: to OWN the Waldorf Astoria, the most prestigious hotel in NYC where all the presidents stay.

During the depression, in the 30s he went broke, but he:
Faced with challenges that might have seemed insurmountable, he did what he had done since he was a boy—resolved to work hard and have faith in God. ” That comes from here

Finally, in the early 40’s he bought the Waldorf.
