Enjoyed this great film from 1952 which features Harley Tumbleweed William, (Carleton Carpenter) who plays the role as a Rodeo Cowboy who has reached the age of 21 years and decides to head to Las Vegas, Nevada and make it rich. Harley visits a small gambling parlor owned by Al, (Keenan Wynn) and starts playing the coin machines and gets very lucky and draws the attention from Dixie Delmar, (Jan Sterling) who is a very attractive slim and trim blonde who makes some suggestions to him about how to gamble on the coin machines. Dixie and Harley decide to try their luck elsewhere and wind up having a very profitable night of gambling. Harley gets to like Dixie very much and offers her a ticket to Los Angeles and a fur coat with his winnings at the Rodeo and the two of them start off with plenty of action in the gambling casino's and then some trouble starts to happen. If you like to see old films of what Las Vegas looked like in the 1950's, this is the film for you. Enjoy.
