Steve D Hits you over the head with its message but the acting keeps it watchable. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/08/23 Full Review Audience Member shines a light on the dark side of gambling addiction Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member **1/2 (out of four) It's almost always worth a seeing a Barbara Stanwyck movie. "The Lady Gambles" allows Stanwyck to shine, but the story is more simplistic and cumbersome. Stanwyck and her husband (Robert Preston) find themselves in Las Vegas. Stanwyck becomes obsessed with gambling and falls in with a bad crowd. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Read all reviews
