What is known is that there was dinner with Sam Giancana, Peter and Pat Lawford, Sinatra and Monroe. Giancana, of course, had no business being in the Cal-Neva since he was listed in the State's Black Book of persons forbidden to enter a casino, in fact, he was at the top of the list of restricted persons, but, as San Francisco's new columnist Herb Caen said: "I saw Sinatra at the Cal-Neva when Sam Giancana was there. In fact I met Giancana through Frank. He was a typical hood, didn't say much. He wore a hat at the lake, and sat in his little bungalow, receiving people."
The gated compound was once the home of both Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe. The stars' rentals overlapped at the property in 1961, reports the Los Angeles Times. Sinatra used the unit as a getaway, while Monroe lived in hers.

In the convoluted rumor, both Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe were to be involved.”
