Storyline

A shock gives "Sach" Jones the ability to visualize numbers before they come up and he and the other Bowery Boys, "Slip" Mahoney, Chuck and Myron, head for Las Vegas to win some money for their landlady. There, "Sach" wins a fortune at roulette, which convinces crooks Tony Murlock, Sam, and Oggy that he has a system. Using Carol LaRue as bait, they try to get his system and failing, they frame him on a phony-murder charge to blackmail him. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

User Reviews

 
Leo Gorcey seemed to be over acting.
29 September 2019 | by valenzadvSee all my reviews

I felt Gorcey s performance was very hard to watch. Usually his wise cracking and boisterous remarks are more playful and amusing whereas in this film "Crashing Las Vegas" Gorcey delivered his lines with anger and hostility. Even his facial expressions seemed to be lacking in emotion. They were a bit "over the top". This film was made after the death of Gorceys father, Bernard (Sweet Louie Dumbrowsky) and marked his last film of the franchise. It was a disappointing performance in my opinion. I felt he could have delivered a better quality of demonstrating his craft, despite the unfortunate circumstances that were surrounding his personal life. Danielle V.
