Here are a few screen shots from 1941 LAS VEGAS NIGHTS http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0033814/
Sorry they're so fuzzy.

Pocket Full of Miracles (1961);
a Mills Black Cherry and a Mills Brown Front.

Anyone restoring a Brown Front should check out this movie (think SUBDUED, not bright and flashy).
You will note how it blends into the background in most scenes (except one where it is featured); this model probably intentionally selected so as not to distract from the actors.
Unless you were looking for it, you might not even notice it's there.

Midcoast Vintage wrote:ROWS OF PACE SLOTS, AND PLENTY OF OTHER GAMBLING EQUIPMENT.
1955 "5 AGAINST THE HOUSE".
LOTS OF SCENES FILMED INSIDE HAROLD'S CLUB.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0048077/


Not only rows and rows of typical Pace machines of that vintage, but there's also a "jackpot" scene with a $1 Pace Piggyback! (1:11:55)

I believe the older gentleman who shows up at about 1:13:15 to ask if Guy Madison is having any luck with the slots-- and where the quarter machines are located-- is/was none other than Harold Smith Sr. himself, though I can find no corroborating indication of this on IMDb. He sure looks like the pictures in Smith's autobiography, "I Want to Quit Winners."

I believe you are right, Harold doing a "walk on with lines" would be a perk for him for using his club as a location shot!
A couple photo's below, one with Jimmy Durante the other on a deck of cards!
