Robert De Niro stars as Sam "Ace" Rothstein, a chain-smoking top gambling handicapper who is called by the Mob to oversee the day-to-day operations at the fictional Tangiers Casino in Las Vegas. The story is based on Frank "Lefty" Rosenthal, who ran the Stardust, Fremont and the Hacienda casinos in Las Vegas for the Chicago Outfit from the 1970s until the early 1980s.

Plot

Sam "Ace" Rothstein (Robert De Niro), a sports handicapper for the mob, is entrusted by four Midwest mob bosses in Kansas City, Missouri (Remo Gaggi, Vincent Borelli, Americo Capelli and Vinny Forlano) to oversee the management of the Tangiers Hotel's casino in Las Vegas in while they illegally skim the casino profits. Basically, Sam's job is to make absolutely sure nobody wins, so as to make as much money for the bosses as possible, and for those who do win, to scare them into giving the money back. The bosses send his boyhood friend, Nicholas "Nicky" Santoro (Joe Pesci), who is famous for his violent temper, to "protect" Sam and their interests. Nicky shows his sadistic and brutal nature in one of the Outfit's bars. When Sam askes a man talking to a woman if a misplaced pen is his, the man insults him in return after saying that the pen does belong to him. Nicky takes the pen out of Sam's hand and furiously stabs him in the neck and kicks him even mocking his whimpering. Robert Mario De Niro, Jr. ...

Later on, Sam falls in love with an attractive hustler named Ginger McKenna (Sharon Stone). Three months later, he proposes to Ginger, who claims to care about him but not love him. Sam laments that his entire life he's always bet on the sure thing, while marrying Ginger would be a "real long shot." But he convinces himself married life will change her. The two have a daughter, Amy, and do marry. Sharon Vonne Stone (born March 10, 1958) is an American Golden Globe- and Emmy-winning actress, producer, and former fashion model. ...


Nicky's recklessness, combined with his cheating in various Las Vegas casinos, get him banned from every gambling den in the city. Undeterred, Nicky starts working for himself in Vegas, organizing his own crew, Jack Hardy (Jed Mills), Sal Fusco (Clem Caserta), and Bernie Blue (Bret McCormick), plus a jewelry business and a restaurant with his brother Dominick (Philip Suriano) and his right-hand man Frank Marino (Frank Vincent). Philip Suriano, born in the year 1948, is an Italian-American actor, probably best known for playing the doomed Dominick Santoro in Martin Scorseses Casino, based on real-life mobster Michael Spilotro. ... Frank Vincent (born Frank Vincent Gattuso on August 4, 1939) is an Italian-American actor. ...


Tensions rise when an up-and-coming hood, Tony Dogs (Carl Ciarfalio), along with two other men shoot up one of Gaggi's diners, killing two of his men and a young waitress. An enraged Gaggi demands information out of Dogs by any means necessary. Nicky and his men beat and torture Dogs for two days. He eventually sticks Dogs' head in an industrial vise with the option of ratting on his crew or dying. Nicky tightens the vise after Dogs curses him until one of his eyeballs pops out of his head. Dogs finally breaks and gives up one of his partners, begging Nicky to kill him afterwards. Nicky leaves Marino to slit the man's throat, and possibly goes to find the other man.


Sam is interviewed by a reporter concerning the running of the Tangiers' hotel. After hinting he runs the casino, which is technically under the cover of the legal chairman, Phillip Green (Kevin Pollak), Sam is forced to apply for a gaming license. The application is rejected by a crooked Nevada senator (Dick Smothers) (who Sam had been comping with money and women at the hotel) as a favor to county commissioner Patrick Webb (L.Q. Jones), whom Sam had enraged earlier by firing his brother-in-law. Kevin E. Pollak (born on October 30, 1957) is an American actor, impressionist and comedian. ... Dick Smothers (born November 20, 1938) is an American comedian, composer and musician from New York, New York. ... L.Q. Jones (born August 19, 1927 in Beaumont, Texas) is an American character actor and film director, best-known for his work in the films of Sam Peckinpah. ...


Ginger's drug and alcohol addictions worsen. Sam learns she is financially aiding her former lover Lester Diamond (James Woods). Nicky arranges for Lester to be beaten up, prompting Ginger to turn against Sam. By way of revenge, she and Lester take Amy and flee. Nicky persuades Ginger over the phone to return but Sam refuses to forgive her disloyalty and drug use. Following a violent argument, Ginger leaves Sam and begins an affair with Nicky. For other persons named James Woods, see James Woods (disambiguation). ...


The bosses notice that the suitcases delivered from the Tangiers are getting lighter, since the men counting the money have begun stealing more than usual for themselves. The bosses put Artie Piscano (Vinny Vella), an underboss from Kansas City, in charge of overseeing the operations, but his loud complaints give the FBI, which had placed bugs in Piscano's grocery, cause to start an investigation. Worse yet, Piscano's frustration at not being reimbursed starts him keeping precise records of the expenses, despite Borelli warning him to put nothing in writing. Vinny Vella (born Vincent Franco Vellacerra on October 3, 1950 in New York, New York) is an actor and part time comedian. ...


Nicky starts drinking too much, and the members of his crew become cocaine addicts. Their work, once cold and precise, becomes sloppy in both planning and execution. Ace notes in a voiceover that it took Nicky three punches to knock down a man; before he'd have needed just one. After two detectives killed Bernie Blue, mistaking his foil-wrapped gyros for a gun, the crew draws attention to themselves by shooting up the detectives' homes. This article is about the food dish. ...


Sam and Ginger's relationship ends for good after Ginger ties Amy to her bed while she goes out to Nicky's restaurant. A furious Sam threatens to kill her, prompting Ginger to turn to Nicky for help. Nicky, aghast at Ginger's attitude (and still showing loyalty to his friend), refuses to help, causing her to create a public scene. Nicky laments to Marino that he "fucked up good this time", a cardinal sin to the bosses being for one associate to sleep with another's wife. Ginger drives to Sam's house in a fit of rage to collect her possessions. The police are called. She tricks the police into letting her enter the home where she steals the keys to a safety deposit box holding $1,000,000. Later, Ginger is arrested for aiding and abetting the Mob.


Ginger's arrest and Piscano's big mouth start the crumbling of the Mafia's desert empire. FBI agents storm Nicky's business and the casino. Piscano's expense reports provide them with a blueprint of how the scam worked, along with dates, names and addresses. While being arrested in his living room, Piscano becomes so upset, he has a massive heart attack and dies.


The FBI also visits Sam with photographic evidence of the affair between Nicky and Ginger to persuade him to testify, but Sam balks. The bosses are arrested and taken to court, where they hold a meeting during a recess in a back room to decide which witnesses should be eliminated to stop them from ratting them out. Gaggi's hitmen murder several associates. Ginger sinks deeper into drug addiction, and ultimately ends up with a group of lowlife bikers in California who use her money to purchase drugs. She collapses in a hotel hallway and dies of a drug overdose, alone.


Sam himself is almost killed by a car bomb, surviving by sheer luck due to a metal plate being underneath the driver's seat. Most likely at the hands of Nicky. The Tangiers and other mob-run Vegas casinos are demolished and replaced with family-friendly "resorts." As Nicky's own narration put it, "It turns out that was the last time that street guys like us were ever given anything that fucking valuable."


Nicky and his brother Dominick hold a meeting in a cornfield with Marino, Nicky's crew, and two of Gaggi's wiseguys, Fat Sally (Michael Toney) and Beeper (Steve Vignari), who helped murder the witnesses. His own crew turns on Nicky, with Marino clubbing him with a baseball bat. As Nicky is helplessly restrained by Fusco and Fat Sally, he watches in horror as Marino, Hardy and Beeper brutally beat Dominick with baseball bats. He begs them to stop, but Marino clubs him twice in the mouth (a scene omitted from most versions), and eventually knocks Dominick into unconsciousness. Nicky is next, and Marino and his men bury the Santoro brothers alive. Sam's narration states the bosses had enough of Nicky, and ordered Marino and the rest of Nicky's crew, along with their hoods, to "make an example" of Nicky and Dominick. Four historically significant baseball bats showcased in the National Baseball Hall of Fames traveling exhibit Baseball As America. ...


Sam is seen in San Diego, making bets for the mob and watching sporting events on multiple televisions. Sam notes that he ended up right back where he started before taking over the Tangiers, picking winners and making money for the bosses back home.


Development

The Tangiers Casino is based on The Stardust Resort & Casino,[4] which closed forever on November 1, 2006. Snippets of Hoagy Carmichael's composition Stardust in the soundtrack give a subtle hint as to the casino's true identity. Lester Diamond was reportedly going to be murdered and buried by Nicky and his crew as a favour for Sam in an early draft of the script, but this idea was changed under the fear of a lawsuit by Lenny Marmor, who is still living to this day. Frank Rosenthal is re-named Sam Rothstein for the film. This could be a nod to one of Joe Pesci's previous films, My Cousin Vinny, which features a character named "Stan Rothenstein" (played by Mitchell Whitfield).

Differences between fact and fiction

  • The majority of the actual events took part in Kansas City, Missouri, even more so than Las Vegas. In the 1970s, the Kansas City mob was involved in a gangland war over control of the River Quay entertainment district, in which three buildings were bombed and several gangsters were killed. Police investigations into the mob took hold after boss Nick Civella was recorded discussing gambling bets on Super Bowl IV (where the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Minnesota Vikings). The war and investigation would lead to the end of mob control of the Stardust Casino, which was the basis for the film (although the Kansas City connections are minimized in the movie).
  • The character of Frank Marino (played by Frank Vincent and based on Frank Cullotta) participates in the killing of the Santoro brothers. In reality, Frank Cullotta was not present and played no part in the beating of the Spilotro brothers (on whom the Santoro brothers were based), and only betrayed them by testifying against them about the M & M murders (as the 1962 murders of James Miraglia and Billy McCarthy in Chicago were called) when Anthony Spilotro ordered him killed over the phone, although Cullotta's testimony was not enough to convict Spilotro. Cullotta also has a cameo as Curly, one of Gaggi's hitmen near the end of the film.
  • The character of John Nance, based on George Vandermark, is murdered in the film with two gunshots to the stomach and one to the head and left in open view. The real George Vandermark was murdered along with his drug addict son, Jeffrey, but his body was never found. Furthermore, Bill Allison (Nance's actor), is a former casino owner and served as a technical advisor for the film, along with Frank Cullota (who plays Curly, Nance's killer).
  • In the film, Artie Piscano (based on Carl A. "Tuffy" DeLuna) dies of a heart attack during an FBI raid on his home. In reality, DeLuna was arrested and tried, and is still alive today.
  • The Tangiers Casino, based on the Stardust Resort & Casino, is shown to be demolished at the end of the movie, whereas in real life, the Stardust Casino was not demolished until March 2007.
  • According to Frank "Lefty" Rosenthal's official website (The man which the film is based on), he never juggled on television, even though Robert De Niro's character does.
  • The Spilotro Brothers were said to be killed in a basement in Bensenville, Illinois, and their bodies buried in the cornfield in Indiana according to testimony of Nick Calabrese in the Chicago Family Secrets Mob Trial.
