I had to use Google for this one:
Author: Walter van Tilburg Clark – The Ox-Bow Incident – one good argument against frontier justice.
Paiute Indian Prophet: Jack Gordon, here is a fascinating link.
Movie, set in: Casino is an underrated Scorsese work, nods also to Leaving Las Vegas and Viva Las Vegas.
Architecture: The competition is stiff. We are staying in the Luxor, but my favorite would be the little bits on the desolate outskirts of town, with pumping oil derricks and tumbleweed.
Inexcusable Aberration: I still think Showgirls is a good film.
We are here, by the way, for my mother’s seventieth birthday.
