Fly on the Wall

Fly on the Wall
A chronicle of Vegas during the glamorous '50s and '60s by a newspaper reporter and publicist who was in the thick of it—the proverbial fly on the wall.

Imagine what it must have been like to be in Las Vegas during its most glamorous and eventful years: the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.

Back then, “the boys” ran the town, dinner shows were a dollar, and vacant lots on what's now the Strip sold for $5 an acre. Tallulah played baccarat, Shecky shot dice, and Frank dealt blackjack.

Fly on the Wall chronicles those times, as well as the men and women who shaped them.

As a reporter for two of the city’s most respected newspapers and a publicist for two of the city’s most infamous casinos, Dick Odessky was in the thick of it—the proverbial fly on the wall. His recollections of Las Vegas’ good old bad old days put you in the thick of it, too.
