The night before the Las Vegas premier of "The Las Vegas Story," Jane and her husband, Robert Waterfield, got into a fight in which he slugged her in the face several times. The next morning, Jane's face was swollen and black and blue. RKO executives didn't want to cancel the premier and Jane appeared at the festivities with a severely swollen and bruised face. A story was given to the press that the intense windstorm the night before slammed an open car door into her face. Despite the believable story, a Newsweek magazine blurb hinted at the actual truth.

The historical aspects of this flick are fascinating. Mature is head-on one of the screens all-time great performers, and his deadpan expressions prove that an actor need not try to act, just be oneself. This movie was shot three years after he got his haircut from Delilah, and it shows the versatility of this guy with one of Hollywood's most ethnic faces. Jane Russell is smashing as the co-star here, and her close-ups have never been more telling as to her true beauty without zooming in on her bra; and like Mature, she too, is superb just non acting and being herself. Their kissing scenes come off quite authentically, too. Vince Price is perfect as the no-good gambling hubby, and Brad Dexter provides a top-notch lecher role. Hoagy is Hoagy as Hoagy always is in these adventure tales, playing his piano and weaving through the plot. A perfect escape movie.
