Even so, as Stone recounts her journey into the underbelly of Las Vegas nightlife while researching the role, to this day she is still forced to go off the Frog Don’t Ever Put Me In A Situation T-Shirt record at points to explain just how deep she went. “I had worked in Vegas before so I knew people there, and once they knew I was making myself available ahead of the film, people started calling me saying, ‘I knew Geri. If you want to talk, I’ll meet you at 1 a.m. on the corner of this and this street. I’ll be wearing a blue shirt and we can talk.’ And we would meet secretly and they would give me information about her.” One anecdote she remembers hearing from a close friend of McGee’s was that her favorite song was B.B. King’s “The Thrill Is Gone”; after Scorsese asked what she was listening to all the time on set and she recounted the story, it ended up included in the film’s soundtrack.
