19 Interesting Facts About the Movie Casino

When you make a film as unbelievably good as Goodfellas, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with repackaging it, moving it out to Vegas, and making it about running a Casino.   That’s essentially what Martin Scorsese’s movie Casino did.   Only in this case he removed Ray Liotta and Paul Sorvino and replaced them with the likes of Sharon Stone and James Woods.   Is the movie the same as Gooodfellas?  Definitely not.  But it reminds me of how David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook) keeps recycling his favorite actors into movies.   Oddly enough, Robert De Niro is in Russell’s films as well.

While not as good as Goodfellas, had that movie never existed and it was just Casino?  I think all of us would have been talking about Casino for years and years just as we talk about Goodfellas.  It’s hard to believe that the film is now 22-years-old but time flies.  And even in that span of 22 years there are plenty of things we haven’t discovered about the film.

For example, did you know that in the scene where you first see Sharon Stone, all that jewelry she’s wearing weighed 45 pounds?  Stone was apparently in agony every single time she shot those scenes because of an old back injury.   It was worth it though as the role earned her a best actress nomination at the 1996 Oscars.

Here are 19 facts you might not have known about the movie Casino.
