Vegas Kid

Sam Durango is riding high. He’s the star of the TV western “The Vegas Kid,” he’s married to a glamorous actress, and he lives in a beautiful home in the Hollywood Hills. And then everything goes to hell in a handbasket. When his show is cancelled and his wife leaves him (taking most of his money and the house, while she’s at it), Sam finds he has to make his way out in the cold cruel world.

Along with a ragtag cast of characters—Sam’s arch-rival Buck Beaumont, a couple of escaped cons, a mystery woman, a good-old-boy casino owner, and the world’s top poker players—Sam heads to Blackies Casino on Halloween looking to hit the jackpot.
