A shocking film-noir tale of temptation, addiction and betrayal from 1949

Starring: Barbara Stanwyck, Robert Preston and Stephen McNally

One woman's gambling addiction puts her marriage, and life, in grave danger. A gritty, classic piece of film noir starring four-time Oscar nominee and Emmy-winner Barbara Stanwyck.

In a dark Chicago back alley, among a crowd of seedy characters, Joan Boothe (Barbara Stanwyck, Double Indemnity) tosses a pair of dice and wins a few dirty dollars. She continues rolling, and continues winning.

Soon, the street thugs discover she's cheating, and decide to administer their own harsh justice.

With her body beaten and spirit broken, Joan finds herself in the hospital, where her estranged husband (Robert Preston, The Music Man) struggles to come to grips with how Joan, once a sophisticated, vivacious, loving wife, spiralled into such a desperate and addicted state.

Elegantly shot and intricately constructed, The Lady Gambles is as thrilling to watch today as it was when it debuted more than 60 years ago.
