Movie Review: The Curse of La Llorona

Episode 7: The Headless Ballerina

Did you know that right across the border in Tijuana existed an amazing, rich, and incredible resort? Patronized by some of the biggest celebrities at the time, Agua Caliente was so incredible that it was the inspiration for Las Vegas! Even though it only existed for a short amount of time, Agua Caliente has left us with some legendary stories, including one about a headless ballerina... TW: Suicide, alcohol, beheading, random train sounds, and rich people. Theme song by Patrick Mullens Story excerpt at the beginning by Paul J. Vanderwood, "Agua Caliente Resort and Casino" Music from the beginning is Carioca by the Gerry Mulligan Quartet.
