The thing I remember most about Merv is when he bought the Resorts Casino in Atlantic City from Donald Trump. Trump immediately went public and said how he put one over on Merv, selling him a high priced run down building which would allow Trump to upgrade his other three casinos.
Not to rain on your parade, but when Merv first operated resorts, its was the only casino in Atlantic City.

Resorts was the first casino in Atlantic City and it was operated by Resorts International. Merv had no interest in it until he bought it from Trump in about 1990 - 92. As far as I know, Merv or his entertainment company still owns it.
