the truth about vegas

Finally watched Havana. Robert Redford plays a gambler who finds meaning in love and selflessness for the first time (shades of Casablanca) as Castro and Che are about to successfully run Battista out of the country.

The girl thought her husband was dead, but Redford not only finds him, but saves him. So he's alone again and wondering what to do, where to go. He asks The Professor, played by Richard Farnsworth, whether he should try Las Vegas.

Farnsworth's dismissive assessment of Vegas (by writer Judith Rascoe) is epic:

"Atom bombs and sandy pussy."
