Stumbled on this site last night from Facebook. There is a video of the strip in 1975. It is fascinating and surprisingly good quality. My first visit was in 2000 so amazing the difference in 25 years and now 20 years after that.

That is so cool, thanks for posting. Wouldn't it be great if you could really go back in a time machine?

Of course, the original The Gambler was made in 1974, so there's some good scenes in that. James Caan doubling on 18 and spiking a 3. Single deck, and dealer peaks, no peaking thing. Dealer tells.

Good post!

Looking at that makes me think the early 90's was some of the best times to be in Vegas. Things were pretty built out and great values were everywhere. Maybe Vegas jumped the shark when they built the Canopy over Fremont.

old grade B movies are great and one episode of Vegas recreated the exterior sign on a casino showing the low roller rates for the day.
25 cent crap games as well as an equally staggering minimum bet for 21.

True. But that little billionaire gives me the creeps. He will only eat meat that he personally kills. What a freak.

Oh my the video called "Koyaanisqatsi (1982)" is so scary although only like 20 seconds. Its just 6 women standing looking at the camera with vegas in the background
