    I am looking for an old friend from Texas. His name is Sam or Sammy Vaughn he is a musician and ex-actor, who used to live in Fort Worth. Does anyone know if this fits the gentleman who plays blackjack with the same name?
    It's been almost 14 years since I've spoken to Sam and I'm using google to try and find him, if he's under 50 it's not the same guy either.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think our Sam Vaughn is a lifelong resident of Nevada. Anyone know for sure? Sammy, you listening?

    Sam is from Phoenix

    According to Henry T's article in the August Casino Player Sam retired in 1992 after a 25 year career in the Post Office and moved from Phoenix, AZ to Nevada in 1995.

    Sammy Doesn't live in Las Vegas

    The information is mostly correct. Sammy moved from Phoenix AZ
    to Nevada. He doesn't live in Las Vegas but rather one of the surrounding
    areas. Out of respect for his privacy, I wont name the town.

    I don't think that this is the Sam Vaughn you're seeking. The Sam Vaughn
    we're referring to is a true Champion and a gem of an individual.

    It must not be, they both sound like stand up guys, the Sam I'm looking for is a Texan and Californian and was not a postal employee. He was in a couple of movies in the 60's and even a guest appearence on Adam 12 , he was the guy that got drunk and stole a plane lol, Then he was a musician playing with Willie and other groups before forming Sammy vaughn and The Cowtown Strings in Ft Worth. There was a chance I suppose.
    Thanks anyways guys, good luck playing!

    Our Sam says he's not the musical Sammy, since he says "I can hardly play the Philco, or 78RPM Victrola."
