Re: Tribute to Kyle

Tomorrow, July 16th, will mark five years since we lost Kyle. I think of you often, Chief, especially when I am excited to share some TCM news. And then I remember. I miss you but you are always in my thoughts and we carry your spirit forward with us. Not a holiday or TCM Film Festival goes by that ...

Re: SCOTT EYMAN TO DISCUSS "HANK & JIM" ON 12/16 & 12/17

Scott! It's great to have you back at the Oasis. One of my fondest TCM Film Festival memories is your wonderful interview with Peter Fonda about his dad a few years ago. Peter Fonda brought us to tears and had us rolling with laughter. Given that, did the Fonda and Stewart children hang out together...

Re: The Q & A on Las Vegas 1956-1973 with Lynn Zook

Lynn, Thanks so much for being a guest and writing such an interesting history of Las Vegas. I wondered if you've seen Las Vegas Nights from 1941? It shows Las Vegas as a much smaller town than most of us are accustomed to seeing. I think that your inclusion of live interviews was a great thing for...

Re: The Q & A on Las Vegas 1956-1973 with Lynn Zook

Moira asked: Lynn, one aspect of Las Vegas history that you address in the book that makes 21st century readers a bit uncomfortable is the now almost comical sounding rampant sexism that existed there. Still, your narrative describes some remarkable women, among them, your mother, casino executive J...

Re: The Q & A on Las Vegas 1956-1973 with Lynn Zook

Moira asked: Do you think this kind of creative work will become more common, particularly in books chronicling the entertainment business? I certainly hope so! It's a great way to tell a story and I think it's also very powerful because you get these first person narratives of events, big and small...

Re: The Q & A on Las Vegas 1956-1973 with Lynn Zook

Christy asked: In your book you discuss many aspects of the architecture of Las Vegas, and I was wondering how you feel about it's contribution to the Mid-Century modern aspect of American architecture. Also, how have the innovations devised for Las Vegas hotels impacted architectural movements in g...

Re: The Q & A on Las Vegas 1956-1973 with Lynn Zook

Thanks for all these film picks, Moira and Lynn. I think I'm partial to Viva Las Vegas and Ocean's 11. I also enjoy The Las Vegas Story. I love hearing about how your experiences reflect the changing times in Las Vegas. https://youtu.be/UyzhnEqtWAc I remember during the film of Diamonds Are Forever...

Re: The Q & A on Las Vegas 1956-1973 with Lynn Zook

Thanks for the detailed responses, Lynn. I love the pictures and videos too, and got a kick out of the image of the pineapple top fountain from The Tropicana. Of the many movies that used Las Vegas as a setting, from about the time of Roy Rogers' Heldorado (1946) to The Hangover Part III (2013), ar...

Re: The Q & A on Las Vegas 1956-1973 with Lynn Zook

I've always wondered about the mystique of the Aladdin and how Wayne Newton became involved in its management. Can you tell us some information on how it all came about? After the Feds closed the Aladdin in the wake of the skim being uncovered at that hotel as well, Wayne Newton had the opportunity...

Re: The Q & A on Las Vegas 1956-1973 with Lynn Zook

It was also great to watch firsthand accounts of the bombing of Frank Rosenthal's Cadillac. Are all these videos in your new book? Yes, there are over 40 videos in Volume 1 and almost 40 in Volume 2. They were culled from all the video oral histories I did about twelve years ago. So, if you have an ...

Christy also asked: 2. How much has the mob influence changed since the 60s? The large-scale skimming operation exposed at the Stardust is a topic you detail in your book, and I'm wondering is there more to the story now? Did you find anything interesting concerning the way operations have changed s...

Glad you are enjoying my responses! Christy asked: 1. What do you remember about seeing Elvis perform? The International Hotel (today the Westgate) opened July 4th weekend, 1969. Kirk Kerkorian had hired Bill Miller to be the Entertainment Director. Miller was a big name in Las Vegas. He had revolut...

Re: The Q & A on Las Vegas 1956-1973 with Lynn Zook

Christy asked: I keep wondering if you had a chance to stay in one of the hotels and money was no object, which hotel would you have chosen for a 3 or 4 day holiday in the late 1950s? In the 1960s? In the 1970s? That's a great question, Christy! If money was no object, hmmmm. Well in the late 1950s,...

Re: The Q & A on Las Vegas 1956-1973 with Lynn Zook

Good morning from the fall like west coast! It's great to be back at the Oasis! I appreciate being asked back. Let's get started- Moira asked: 1.) What changed the most in LV in the years between the '50s & the '70s? By the mid-1970s, the Classic era was coming to an end. The performers were get...
