    Last night I watched a full or fuller version of the film; a cut I've never before seen. No plot nuggets to add, but there certainly was a lot more Oscar.

    I still like that movie, I think it holds up well if you can stay in the mindset of that era. Every time I see it while flipping channels, Mrs VBJ says - "you're watching that again?"

    That was Terri's reaction when she rolled in about 11p after a late meeting. lol She made some hot chocolate, grabbed a magazine and trundled off to our room.

    I get re-pissed at Sharon Stone's character (Ginger) every time I watch this. Deniro's character (Rothstein) should never have tolerated even half of her crap.

    Ace also seemed to be the only "connected" guy not to have action on the side.

    I've never heard any stories of Lefty messing around.
    From a couple old guys from that era that some acquaintances with
    ,he was totally focused on running the place.

    I was more of a Dunes guy back in the day

    Stardust was my very first Vegas hotel/casino... mob was "officially" gone by 1980 when I had my first trip, but I can tell you - the "feel" of the place, and certainly the staff and excellent customer service were still firmly on "carry-over" mode from those days.

    It was all about the gambler then... for that, and for many other reasons, it was a better time for Vegas than today.
