Synopsis

Rock Hudson (in his final television movie) is a charming Las Vegas hotel owner who tries to turn a decaying casino into The Strip's top attraction to avenge his outting by his former partners across the street. James Earl Jones, in a fright wig, does a devastating turn as a Don King type who may or may not be on Hudson's side -- depending on where the money is. "Las Vegas Strip Wars" was the film's original title until just before its premiere.
