1952’s The Las Vegas Story, which screens at 6am on Saturday 26 November on BBC2, is a minor RKO gem starring Jane Russell as a singer returning to Vegas with her gambler husband (Vincent Price), and picking up with her former lover (Victor Mature).

But when a man is murdered, the film changes from romantic melodrama to action adventure, complete with a helicopter swooping through deserted hangars and Mature getting all athletic to save his Jane.
