    I saw it Friday.
    It was a Reno casino robbery movie. ( late 1950's )
    I thought "Oh ?...this is where they evolved 'Ocean's Eleven' from ?
    Naw.......
    It was in a package of "Film Noir" DVD's about crime - all B+ W.
    *
    Well........it sucked !!!
    A couple actor faces - I recognized.
    Even the dealer, they hoist, is Robert Conrad ( 70's detective series ? )
    The actor, Brian....?, was in it......he was in 60's family series ?...with the butler + two/three kids ?)

    Just thought I'd mention it --
    it is NOT on my pre- "Vegas Gambling Movie" list.

    Anybody actually see this crap ?

    James !
    I could NOT think of the actor's name + that damn TV series !
    Thanks.....was drivin' me crazy, too !
    "Family Affair"..... watched it a couple mins here + there..... - but was aware of it.
    One of the kid's names was....."Buffy" or something stupidly close to that ?
    Brian Keith !......yup....made a bunch of movies.
    *
    "Frank.......?.....".........was the 70's detective series.....he was an overweight detective -
    I think it was on, around Magnum PI + James Garner detective shows
    Can't think of that name either ?.....watched it a couple times.

    Wow look up Brian Keith on wikipedia.What a life..WW11 vet,grandmother suicide off the Hollywood sign,his daughter commits suicide and 2 months later he kills himself also.
    Only Frank? I can find is Police squad where the character is Frank Drebin (Leslie Neilson) and that gig evolved into Naked Gun films.That was 80's though.

    Joe... you're thinking of 'Cannon' (Frank Cannon)...that was William Conrad... Robert Conrad was Jim West in 'Wild, Wild West', and he was in 'Baa, Baa, Black Sheep' as Maj. Boyington.

    James-
    jesus !...what a tough life !....I didn't know all that stuff about Brian Keith + family ?
    He was in some Disney films + lotsa other stuff.

    Topcard -
    "Frank Cannon !"...that was it !....I watched that sometimes.
    And "Wild Wild West" was one of my FAVORITE tv shows as a kid.
    Later read about Robert Conrad liked to hang with Tony Spilotro in Vegas.
    Whoa ?
    Couldn't find anybody else, to hang with, while in Vegas ?
    I read a story --
    One day, in Vegas, a tourist bus clipped Spilotro's car --
    Upon exchanging info -- all these blue haired seniors - started getting off the bus
    to get Robert Conrad's autograph.....he was 'hangin' out" with Spilotro for the day.
    Do you want to exchange personal info with Tony Spilotro ?
