    Never ran across anything like movie memorabilia. I enjoy reading about the true events in the movie. The most fascinating thing I found was a person named Frank Culatta. I belive he was a contributor on the movie, had a bit part recreating a murder he actually committed.

    Last year I bought a couple of Tangiers casino chips used in the movie. Came in a nice frame with a picture of the cast. The website is called propstore.com.

    There used to be and maybe still is a collectables store in the Rio that had a lot of movie stuff.Field of Dreams..saw some good "Scarface " stuff in there once but they are/were more sports related...Maybe call the Rio and ask about the store.I was there 4 whole days in September and my degen self never went to the masquerade area..
    Hope that helps but PM me if it doesn't and I'll post the question on the Chipboard a collectors club of chips,ashtrays etc.. Good Luck

    eber91,
    I like to do a walk thru of the Riviera - every trip -
    The casino gaming area ( w/ the old school ceiling ) and the pool area
    were featured in "Casino".........along w/ those glass doors opening
    onto The Strip.

    Yes, Definitely check out the Riviera next time you are in town. Lots of history there.

    I know this doesn't help with your request, but if you haven't been there yet you should check out the Mob Museum. Aside from 3 floors of really cool stuff, at the end they have a whole area in tribute to Mob movies, including a short documentary about the making & history of some of the films (including Casino)

    I was staying at the Riviera during the filming of Casino. Most of the filming was done late at night. I was back counting around the blackjack tables when a junior member of the film crew came up to me and started telling me to stop trying to be in the frame. I shook my head and was laughing. I didn't want to tell him I was card counting, but did tell him I am looking for a good spot to open and had no idea that it was even near the filming, which was true. I think he was just a power hungry kid, because as I looked towards the barriers they had set up for the filming, I couldn't even see where the camera was located. After watching the film, I didn't see any scenes where anyone but professional actors were on camera, so I have no idea what he was talking about, and maybe neither did he!

    I have stayed a couple times ElCo's Cabana Suites now and that used to be a flop house called Ogden House where they filmed the scene of Ginger collapsing. That's all I got.
