The Lady Gambles Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P67643~Barbara Stanwyck~barbarastanwyck]] plays a woman whose addiction to gambling all but ruins her life. [[Performer~P67643~Stanwyck~barbarastanwyck]]'s husband [[Performer~P57736~Robert Preston~robertpreston]] tries to stand by her side, but even he is driven away by her gambling mania. [[Performer~P67643~Stanwyck~barbarastanwyck]] lies, cheats and steals in order to raise capital for her addiction, descending from comparative wealth to grinding poverty in the process. Eventually she is reduced to gambling for penny-ante stakes in back alleys, before she is rescued by her still-faithful spouse. The Lady Gambles includes an appearance by young [[Performer~P199612~Tony Curtis~tonycurtis]], in the bit role of a helpful bellhop. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
