Title: Gambling House (1950) Half a noir
Post by: titoli on October 14, 2021, 03:32:49 AM
The other half you can skip it: about deportation, immigration and the romantic side with Mature falling for (and being redeemed by) Terry Moore, about whom I wondered all the time how she ever got the part. But  the beginning and the end of the movie are at least original and in noir style shot, and a good  casino "hold-up" scene. Except for a couple of minutes entirely shot in studio. Mature is perfect in his usual good bad guy part. Bendix, as the villiain, doesn't convince me (as he never does in any part). 6/10
