Description

From Bugsy Siegel to the Rat Pack, Wayne Newton, Vegas showgirls, cassinos of epic proportions and light shows that would make the heavens blush, Las Vegas is the most raucous, sinfully fun city in the world. Coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the incorporation of the city, LAS VEGAS documents the rollercoaster-ride history of this most outrageous playground - from the Mormom missionaries who came to the area for the natural springs, the mobsters who ruled the city through the 50s, eccentric millionaires buying up casinos like penny candy, monumental gambles, atomic blasts, to the tourists of today looking for fun that can only be found there.
