A Big Hand For the Little Lady

Film, Action and adventure

A superb cast makes up for indifferent direction in this engaging O Henryish yarn about a marathon poker game (in Laredo, despite the British release title) and the little lady who uses her feminine wiles to scoop the pot. To be fair to Cook, this started life as a 48-minute teleplay by Sidney Carroll; the rest he has to pad out with close-ups and irrelevancies.
