Casino - The Mysterious Moving Bank
At the beginning of the movie, Sam and Ginger start an account at a Los Angeles bank "under the name of Mr. & Mrs. Tom Collins." Sam deposits $2MM (in case of emergency) in a safety deposit box, then gives Ginger the only key.
At the end of the movie, when the whole relationship goes sour, Ginger steals the key out of Sam's desk when the Las Vegas police escort her into the house to get a few things. Minutes later, she arrives at the bank to get the money out of the deposit box, closely pursued by the Las Vegas police who actually help her put the money in bags. The time lapse of a 4-6 hour drive from Vegas to LA isn't even suggested, and of course the presence of the Las Vegas police at both the Rothstein's house and the bank (why would Vegas police have jurisdiction in LA?) prove the slip-up.

the portion you are talking about is not actually a slip the bank she goes to (which is actually a radio station office on desert inn road)is the bank where the "1 million in cash and jewels" was kept, which is why she had to get the key out of the desk at the was not the "tom collins" box, if you look at the safe deposit boxes from scene to scene the box in LA is a smaller thin box and the box in vegas is a wide and tall box, for a long time i was thinking the same thing, and then i noticed the size of the boxes so i finally caught on. but in any case in wasn't very clear in the movie and i'm sure that most people that watched it thought the same thing

I pointed this out years ago on this site and apparently they removed it. I think I'd actually call it a slip up, for the reason that they made such a big deal out of indicating that the Tom Collins box existed in the first place... why then would they use a different box at the end? I wouldn't be so inclined to nitpick this movie if it weren't such a great piece of cinema.
