Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino

Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino

When M gives James Bond the mission of intercepting a diamond heist in Diamonds are Forever (1971), the spy protests that he’s too big for a simple smuggling matter. Little does he know that the interception will involve super villain clones, the threat of mass destruction and a giant diamond-powered laser—all against the backdrop of the Nevada desert. Of course, Bond stays at the Tropicana, home of the bare-breasted Folies Bergere revue. Several of the iconic hotels feature in the movie have long since closed, including the Sands, the Dunes, the Landmark, and the Mint, but the International (the “Whyte House” in the movie) lives on as the Westgate—a rebranded in 2014. The building itself has gone through a number of changes, as the Las Vegas Hilton, then the LVH, but the building—and its recognizable sign—have been backdrops in Elvis Presley’s concert documentary, Elvis – That’s The Way It Is; Indecent Proposal; and Over the Top.
