The Mississippi Gambler
Directed by Rudolph Maté
Hollywood legend Tyrone Power (The Mark of Zorro, Prince of Foxes) plays a high-stakes game for love and money in the Technicolor adventure The Mississippi Gambler. Mark Fallon (Power), a riverboat gambler on his way to New Orleans, meets Angelique Dureau (pitch-perfect Piper Laurie, Son of Ali Baba, The Hustler), a Southern belle who spurns his charm and advances. Using his winnings to build a casino, Fallon’s card skills make him a fortune, while his pursuit of the fiery Angelique leads to knife fights, family feuds and duels over personal honor. Written by Seton I. Miller (The Adventures of Robin Hood, Here Comes Mr. Jordan) and directed by Rudolph Maté (D.O.A., When Worlds Collide), The Mississippi Gambler is a rip-roaring western romance with a sparkling cast including Julie Adams (Bend of the River).
