The above picture has this description:Frank Sinatra in Arabian costume to promote the grand opening of the Dunes Hotel in 1955. Standing next to Sinatra is Major Riddle. I am pretty sure that the man with Sinatra is not Major Riddle. It looks a little more like Jake Freedman from the Sands. The sands owners were involved with the Dunes in those years.
From the Gaming Control Board files August 25, 1955: DUNES-SANDS HOTEL CORP. - LAS VEGAS
Mr. Hancock explained that the Sands Hotel had acquired the lease currently held by the Dunes
Hotel and organized a wholly owned corporation known as the Dunes-Sands Hotel Corporation. He outlined the terms of the lease and various points of it were discussed. All the necessary requirements for a
license having been met and there being no objections~ the application was approved.
