Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Cult Vegas, author Mike Weatherford resurrects the mystique of Las Vegas' Golden Age--the '60s-cool of history and legend-and introduces Sin City's hipster legacy to new generations of Vegasphiles. Meet '50s and '60s lounge greats the Treniers, the Mary Kaye Trio, and Louis Prima and Keely Smith; comedy legends Joe E. Lewis, Shecky Greene, and Don Rickles; and Vegas babes Vampira, Lili St. Cyr, Ann-Margret, and Tempest Storm. Weatherford also covers nearly every offbeat movie ever made about Las Vegas, as well as Elvis and Frank's impact on the town. This gorgeous entertainment retrospective is packed with showroom esoterica, descriptions of near-forgotten corners of Vegas cult musicology, odd trivia, and unsung heroes of a bygone era.

Synopsis:

Cult Vegas chronicles the majore moments, the camp, the extreme, the awful, in short, the magic of Las Vegas' half-century run as an entertainment mecca.
