REVIEW
Patrick Dempsey participates before to one left of clandestine poker in New Jersey that the game came legalizzato in the casinos of that state. One of the rarest scenes in which a player is looked at it gives one gratuity to the dealer, dipped in one nuve of passive smoke. The game catches up its apex when an aggressive player much and violent one force Dempsey to change one paper, rather than is given served. "This is one new varying of the game: Gestapo poker." The film attract attention for the ritomo chasing and sure it will hold to you with the breath suspended from the beginning to the end.

REVIEW
Tried to imagine how much you could earn if you succeeded in ipnotizzare an adversary fine al point to make it to be with three blackjack or to fargli throwing via the playing cards with one hand winning in one left of poker. The crazy criminal Dr. Mabuse has this power. Directed from Fritz Lang, Dr. Mabuse is sure between best dumb films not Americans, with to Metropolis of the same Lang and to the Battleship Potemkin di Sergei Eisenstein. Lang and other directors have produced numerous sequel in the course of the forty years succeeded to you, but nobody of these is successful to show the playing cards or the gambling in way much fascinating one. One citation: "an ambitious dream of youth, being winning to the game and in love." There is then this question asked the income of a private club: "Playing Cards or cocaine?"!!!

Been born yesterday
1950, of George Cukor, with Judy Holliday.
REVIEW
The game is the Gin. Judy Holliday makes the part of the typical stupid blond woman and svampita, while Broderick Crawford is the hard man who holds it to attends. Observed Holliday while it plays and your idea of the table from game will always change in order. A beautiful film, with memorable scenes. In the remake of 1993 with Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson the scene of the game to Gin does not succeed to having the same impact.

Not to lose.
