Martin Scorsese concludes his gangster trilogy, which began with 1973s Mean Streets and continued with 1990s GoodFellas, with "Casino," a lengthy 1995 melodrama set in Vegas. The scenes shot outside the fictional Tangiers hotel in the movie, which stars Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Sharon Stone, was filmed in front of the Landmark Hotel shortly before it was imploded. The casino and offices scenes were filmed at the legendary Riviera Hotel and Casino between 1 and 4 a.m. so not to bother the real gamblers. Game Play: Theres plenty of casino action, but most notably from the blackjack tables.
