After the photo lab I worked at went out of business, I began doing background work in the movies. Every so often, I'll get booked to play a casino patron. The costumers always want the predominantly youngish crowd dressed in stylish and expensive clothes. I'm not much for Vegas and gambling, but the few times I've been on the strip, I've noticed that the typical casino goer tends towards middle age and above and they dress more polyester than silk. Hey, it's only a movie.
The Lady Luck opened in 1964 and closed in 2006. The property was eventually bought, renovated and reopened, in 2013, as The Downtown Grand. I'm guessing this photo was a lot closer to 1964 than not.
