Looking for suggestions for movies or documentaries on Vegas in the 30’s-40’s.

Not Casino, love it, but before that. Kind of the early Fremont st casinos and Seigel / Lansky Flamingo era.

thanks!

The movie Bugsy with Warren Beatty was based on Bugsy opening the Flamingo in the 40’s. Somewhat accurate account of his life in LA and and grand opening. Nothing was on the strip back then, only the El Ramcho, I think. All the action was downtown back then.
