The cinematographic industry likes gambling houses. It is indisputably because not one dozen of famous and much-talked-of movies in the world cinematograph have been shot either in a casino or about the casino or even based on the real events of gambling business.

The hazard, money, risk, the world of rich, beautiful and dangerous people – all these things are the unchangeable source of inspiration for script writers and supervisors. The casino world conceals intrigues, great expectations, exciting events and, the most important, human fortunes. Probably that is why the special atmosphere with its own story hovers within the walls of casino. This story and some others should be told.

One of such stories describes the very creation of Las Vegas (that doesn't need special presentations). The movie of Martin Scorsese "Casino" was out in 1995. The base of the film is lied upon the story of three heroes played by Sharon Stone, Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci. The lines of heroes' destinies interweave in gangsters' Vegas and by the end of the film a viewer can observe three different finals, to which each hero comes by himself/herself. The film has extremely realistically depictured all events in Vegas, and got two Golden Globe and Oscar awards.

The one more screen version that had an honour to get the Oscar has name "The Sting". It is dated 1973 year of production. Unlike "Casino" the plot of this film is not so bloody, but not without a drama as well. The professional swindlers Henry Hondroff and Johnny Hooker create the quite cunning plan how to cheat Doyle Lonnegan that has become the betrayer and killed the partner of Johnny Hooker (Robert Redford). The film critics still recognize the film "The Sting" as the world masterpiece; and viewers have recon this film to the classic.

Very often the plot turns over the gambling in such films. The film "Deal" of 2008 is a good example. In spite of the light plot about two poker keens, the film is easy to watch and it moves viewer to the colorful Vegas with all its beauty and dancing fountains. It is remarkable that one of the main roles played real poker player in this film. And it was not the usual player but Shannon Elizabeth herself – the one of the most famous women-players. This film as not any other stimulates viewer to play poker if not in the poker tournament, than at least in Internet.

Very often script writers take as the basis of their film the players' obsession to beat the casino. Thus in the "Ocean's Trilogy" films supervisor used this plot three times. Deriving encouragement of the star actors membership (George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts and cetera), Steven Soderbergh (the supervisor) has created the trilogy in which the team of the most skillful swindlers creates genial strategies with the view of getting great winnings in the casino. The viewers like "Ocean's Trilogy" and it seemed that any other film couldn't gain this viewers' sympathy in the short run. It may be true if the world wouldn't see the new part of Bond films – "Casino Royale".

On of the latest films about the legendary James Bond contains the enough quantity of effect scenes in the casino. The most complex task for creators of the film with the story about the casino is the reality of all events on the playing tables. As for "Casino Royale" the crew managed this task with the great success. The film has got the approval of the skilled players as for all events on the screen.

All above-mentioned films are connected with the casino that has become the epicenter in the speed of the events. Besides the mentioned pictures there are many others, of course. They are "21", "California Split", "Rounders", "Cooler", "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels", "Revolver", "Even Money", "What Happens in Vegas", "Lucky You" and many others. But in all these films the main plot is seasoned with gambling and passions that develops within the casino.

The theme of gambling and hazard that is concentrated in the casino will attract the cultural figures in future. The world cinematograph will create a lot of films about the life feast, risk and euphoria of winning.
