man arrived in the valley aboard a special train. ((kirsten joyce)) >> reclusive billionaire howard hughes was world- famous as an aviator, movie maker, and but in the four years he spent living in las vegas, only a handful of people ever saw him face to face. ((brian loftus)) >> the i-team's chief investigator george knapp looks back at that seminal event half a century ago. ((george knapp)) this inauspicious railroad crossing in north las vegas is the exact spot where howard hughes' excellent nevada adventure began. the billionaire used his influence to essentially clear
6:26 am
boston to las vegas. on thanksgiving night 1966, he arrived with no fanfare. geoff schumacher: the train stops. hughes is carted off the train onto a stretcher, gets into the van, drives the van over to the desert inn hotel, goes to the back of the hotel, they go up the fire escape carrying hughes. ((george knapp)) veteran journalist geoff schumacher knows the story as well as anyone. he's the content director at the mob museum which has a hughes exhibit, and he wrote a highly regarded book about the billionaire's yes paranoia and palace intrigue. geoff: he moves into one of the suites and his aides are kind of blocking off the hallways and working off the entire top floor. nobody in town knows that howard hughes is here.it takes several days for the press to figure this out.....the mysterious howard hughes has moved to las vegas. what's this all about? and the speculation begins. ((george knapp))
6:27 am
las vegas. the economy was sputtering. unemployment was up. gaming revenue was down. critics were once again saying the town was overbuilt. the arrival of hughes was seen as a very big deal. hughes had been here before, starting in the late 40's. he flew over the desert in his many developmental planes...wooed and stashed various women in las vegas hotels.....hired future sheriff ralph lamb to be his eyes and ears...and bought an unassuming green house which today sits behind kl decided to buy. hughes right hand man during his four years in las vegas, robert maheu, later said the billionaire had no specific business plan in mind when he arrived, that he mostly wanted a place to stay. geoff: he had money to spend and he was looking for a small pond where he could spend it. he wanted to own a state. he basically wanted to take over nevada, because in california, he was not such a big fish anymore.there were all kinds of people who were rich....hughes
6:28 am
he thought nevada could be that place. george knapp: well, he was right, wasn't he? geoff: he was right. ((george knapp)) when the owner of the desert inn chafed at hughes' monopolizing an entire floor of the hotels best rooms, hughes ended the argument by buying the hotel for 13 million dollars. it proved such a benefit for tax reasons that he instructed maheu to buy more...and they did...5 more las vegas casinos...along with vast tracts of raw land that later bem mining claims. most of all, he bought politicians with bags of cash. amazingly, he wass granted a gaming license without ever appearing in public. geoff: he jump started the las vegas economy by investing about 200-300 million dollars in it over a period of four years. that's the one thing. he also started nudging the mob out.... ...he bought them out and he started giving las vegas the reputation that, hey, legitimate people can invest here,. come on corporations, come on
6:29 am
howard hughes, it might be good enough for you. ((george knapp)) officially, hughes never left his hotel room during his las vegas stint...though some people. including truck driver melvin dummar--would dispute that. four years after slipping into town, he slipped out just as quietly but not before setting in motion a chain of events that changed the town and the state forever. george knapp 8 news now./// ((brian loftus)) >> melvin dummarh after finding him in the desert in 1967, still lives here in nevada.
