Las Vegas Nights (1941)


A member of a New York City vaudeville troupe inherits property in Las Vegas and, upon arrival, is thrown in jail for bringing livestock into Nevada without a license.

Hitting the jackpot in one of the casinos provides the needed money…but many, many complications ensue.

    This was a stupid movie,, nothing really comedic, and the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra had very little time to play because of the idiocy of the trashy attempts at comedy.
