When listing the top movers and shakers in the history of Las Vegas gaming, Steve Wynn, Kirk Kerkorian, and Howard Hughes inevitably garner a mention.

He transformed Circus Circus from a struggling curiosity into the Strip’s most successful resort. Forgotten Man, told through in-depth interviews with family members, friends, employees, and others who knew Bennett, tells the story of a man who as much as anyone built modern Las Vegas.
