BACK

3000 Las Vegas Boulevard, 1955, Nevada. It was The Stardust Resort and Casino’s glittering sign that gave visitors a panoramic view of the solar system. A sixteen-foot model of the Earth beamed cosmic rays of neon in all directions. Three-dimensional glass planets spun alongside twenty scintillating glowing starbursts and across the universe rested a jagged galaxy of flashing letters spelling out "Stardust". At night the brilliant constellations were reportedly visible sixty miles away; a beacon of glamour, the culmination of Cornero’s vision and life’s work.

 

It was to be the biggest and best casino hotel on the Las Vegas strip.  Cornero envisioned five hundred air-conditioned rooms, entertainment by legendary performers, high-roller lounges and classy restaurants offering up exotic fare.

STARDUST IN YOUR EYES

SONG LYRICS

WHEN IT’S HOT IN THE DESERT

150 DEGREES

YOU’LL BE SWIMMING IN POOLS OF DIRTY MAR-TIN-IS

YOU GOT TO HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF STARDUST IN YOUR EYES

 

TAKE OUT YOUR WALLET

AND THROW DOWN SOME CASH

DOUBLE DOWN ON A COUPLE LADIES WITH CLASS

YOU GOT TO HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF STARDUST IN YOUR EYES

 

THERE WILL BE MOUNTAINS OF GOLD

AND RIVERS OF BOOZE

JUST TELL YOUR OLD LADY THERE’S NO WAY WE CAN LOSE

YOU GOT TO HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF STARDUST IN YOUR EYES

WHERE THE WORLD CAN STAY

WHERE ANY OLD JOE CAN BE KING FOR A DAY

YOU GOT TO HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF STARDUST IN YOUR EYES
