Vegas Gold: The Entertainment Capital of the World 1950-1980

David Wills  (Autor)
An evocative, glamorous look at the golden years of Las Vegas, captured in more than 125 lush color and black-and-white photographs.

"I love that town. No clocks. No locks. No restrictions."-Marlene Dietrich

The playground in the desert built by the mob and transformed by Howard Hughes, the "fabulous, extraordinary madhouse," that is Las Vegas, Nevada, has long been regarded as the Entertainment Capital of the World. During the post-war boom years, no place was as fascinating as Vegas. Distinguished by millions of colorful neon lights, the sounds of rhumba music, and the clink of silver dollars, Vegas was a recreational colony for Hollywood's most glamorous and a dream destination for thousands of ordinary Americans.

Vegas Gold vividly showcases the glitz, glamour, and charm of Sin City's golden years, from the 1950s to the 1980s. An adoring ode to this ultimate adult playground, it celebrates the best of old Las Vegas-the Sands Hotel, the Stardust, Fremont Street, the Golden Nugget, the Riviera Hotel, the Desert Inn, and the Horseshoe-and its legendary headliners, including Frank Sinatra, Marlene Dietrich, Elvis Presley, Liberace, Ann-Margret, Sammy Davis Jr., Eartha Kitt, Noel Coward, and of course, the gorgeous Vegas showgirls. Framed by quotes and short essays that profile the marquee names that made Las Vegas the ultimate destination, the legendary years of this magical city live on in all their glory in Vegas Gold.
