Las Vegas Free-For-All
I don't think I've ever posted this here, have I? Let's remedy that tonight.
LAS VEGAS FREE-FOR-ALL is the English language title given to the Crazy Cats comedy クレージー黄金作戦 ("Crazy Ogon Sakusen" - Crazy Gold Operation). It is a glorious, epic (over two and a half hours!) film that spans from Hawaii to Los Angeles to Las Vegas. And yes, I am pretty sure they went to all those locations.
One thing that isn't obvious from the trailer is that the film features PEGGY NEAL of THE X FROM OUTER SPACE and TERROR BENEATH SEA fame. What's more, you get to hear her real voice for once and you get to see her in a bikini. If you are a Peggy Neal fan, this is a must-see movie.
But there's way more than just Peggy Neal. There's a lot of surprisingly accessible comedy from the Crazy Cats, though the plentiful English helps a great deal. There's Mie Hama turning in another wonderful and sexy performance. And there's even a musical number by the Peanuts!
