This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   After seeing the hitchhiker in Baker, Duke finds a phone booth between a Sinclair Station and the Majestic Diner. He calls his Attorney and tells him he will have him disbarred because of all the illegal things he has in the car. Gonzo reminds him of the telegram and he has rented a suite at the flamingo and a white Cadillac. He then goes across the street and has a Balentine's ale and talks with the bartender. The phone booth is in a junkyard surrounded by wrecked cars. Duke says nothing about disbarment and Gonzo never mentions the white Caddy. He doesn't go to a bar afterward.
   Before going back to Vegas, Duke fires the .357 three times into the desert, then gets worried. He checks his drug supplies and goes to a place to buy book and gets some ether. He fires all the bullets in the gun. Suddenly he is driving in the white Cadillac.
   Duke goes to the airport and parks the red shark. He goes into the bar and drinks a bloody mary. Then he trades the shark for the White Coup de Ville. After his phone call with Gonzo, he is seen driving the white Caddy with no mention of how he got it.
   Duke checks into the Flamingo carrying he leather satchel. He witnesses a police chief from Michigan have an altercation with the desk clerk. They call the manager who offers to call them a cab. Duke stops and everyone stares at him. He is carrying the huge case of drugs with him. The clerk has the altercation with the Police chief and the manager isn't called.
   Duke checks into the Flamingo looking bad. He is wearing old Levi's jeans, a torn Acapulco shirt. He had a three day growth of beard and is wearing mirrored sunglasses. He is wearing shorts, and has his jacket on so we can't see if his shirt is torn. He is cleanly shaven and he is wearing regular dark sunglasses. He orders some booze sent to his room and the front desk clerk tells him his name is Sven.
