"Running a casino is like robbing a bank with no cops around. For guys like me, Las Vegas washes away your sins. It 's like a morality car wash. "
Sam "Ace " Rothstein

Esteemed director Martin Scorsese heads West with Casino, applying his unique cinematic vision to another segment of the American cultural landscape. Scorsese, who has deftly navigated from the Mean Streets (1973) of Little Italy to high society Edwardian New York in The Age of Innocence (1994), now casts his keen eye on the Las Vegas strip, stopping for close-ups on high rollers, lowlifes and everyone in-between. Las Vegas, 1973: a city of glitter and dreams. It's a stage for billionaires, politicians and glamorous showgirls. The home of charlatans, slot cheats, card counters, chip hustlers and bottom dealers. A playground for bookies, loan sharks, drug dealers, pimps and torch artists. Mecca to 30 million tourists and gamblers of all colors who arrive with high hopes and leave behind about 10 billion dollars every year. And paradise for the Mob.

Robert De Niro, Sharon Stone and Joe Pesci star in Casino, directed by Martin Scorsese for Universal Pictures. Scorsese co-wrote the screenplay with Nicholas Pileggi, based on Pileggi's recently published nonfiction book of the same title. The De Fina-Cappa Productions film was produced by Barbara De Fina. Robert Richardson is the cinematographer. Editor Thelma Schoonmaker and production designer Dante Ferretti continue their collaboration with Scorsese. Rita Ryack and John Dunn are the costume designers. The film also stars Don Rickles, James Woods, Alan King, Kevin Pollak and Frank Vincent.
