Fake-Out (also released as Nevada Heat) is a 1982 American crime comedy film directed by Matt Cimber, written by Cimber and John F. Goff, and starring Pia Zadora, Telly Savalas, Desi Arnaz Jr., and Larry Storch.
The film was Pia Zadora’s second lead role in a feature. All her first three films as star were financed by the company of her then husband Meshulam Riklis (the others were Butterfly and The Lonely Lady). Matt Cimber, who directed Butterfly, also made Fake Out.
Zadora described it as “a cops-and- robbers-and-nightclub-singer story, kind of like a long Kojak.” She added the film “has me singing a little, but it’s nothing I’m terribly proud of.”
The film was mostly shot on location in Las Vegas, principally around the Riviera Hotel!
