Dear Bob:

When countersigned by you in the space provided below, this letter represents 
our agreement with respect to your separation from MGM Grand, Inc. In this

affiliates, and those companies as to which it is a joint venturer.

1. Resignation. Effective today, you hereby resign from all offices, 
directorships and any other positions you hold in the Company.

2. Salary Continuation. We agree that you shall be treated as an employee of 
the Company for a period of up to one year from the date appearing above.
Subject to paragraph 3 below, your current salary and those medical benefits
provided to senior officers of MGM Grand, Inc. will be continued for that
period. Your stock options will continue to vest for the seven months ending
February 15, 1996. On February 15, 1996 all unvested stock options will be
cancelled and all vested stock options will remain exercisable until October 15,
1996. You will not accrue or be eligible for any bonuses, vacation benefits or

is intended to compensate you for any and all other compensation or benefits to
which you may have otherwise been entitled. Notwithstanding the above, you will
be entitled to receive the compensation payable to you on February 1, 1996
pursuant to the incentive bonus arrangement contained in the letter to you dated
February 9, 1993. In the event you obtain other employment as a full time
employee, director or otherwise, you agree that the aggregate amount of your
salary will be reduced by the amount of compensation received by you in those
new positions. Your medical coverage will continue only until it is replaced by
the medical plan provided in connection with any full time employment you may
obtain, but in no event longer than the employment term hereof, and coverage you
elect to obtain (at your own expense) under COBRA.

3. During the term of your salary continuation, you agree that you will not 
conduct yourself in any manner that adversely affects the Company or its 
affiliates. In the event you do so, all benefits, including your stock option
vesting rights will terminate on notice to you that

the extent required in the event of any litigation, investigation or other 
proceeding where your assistance is requested by the Company.

5. In consideration for this salary continuation and your continuation as an 
employee for purposes of the stock option plan, you hereby release any and all 
claims you may have against the Company arising out of or in connection with 
your employment to date, including but not limited to, claims arising under
