Product Description

When first telecast on April 8, 1980, this made-for-TV movie was titled "Kenny Rogers as The Gambler". Jim Byrnes' teleplay is loosely inspired by Rogers' Grammy award-winning song. Rogers plays high-rolling gambler Brady Hawkes, who is en route from El Paso to Yuma to see the son he never knew. Along the way, Hawkes befriends Billy Montana (Bruce Boxleitner), feckless Eastern tinhorn. The twosome comes to the aid of reformed "lady of the evening" Jennie Reed (Lee Purcell), who is pursued by an unprincipled train baron. At the end, Brynes must stand up to his son's cruel stepfather (Clu Gulager).

The story is far fetched but the characters are noble...and if you're a Kenny Rogers fan, what is there not to like! Great escapism entertainment!

The Gambler Aug. 22 2011
By Ernest Caldwell Jr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
It was great to see this movie again; don't know why TV stations have not shown it in many years. Kenny Rogers has been a really good singer since his days w/ The First Edition through his switch to country style music & The Gambler theme song is 1 of his best [Ruby is another good song]. Not only is he a good singer, Rogers is a pretty good actor in his role as Brady Hawks too. The supporting actors in The Gambler are also good, & the story keeps your interest throughout. If you like westerns, & don't have The Gambler in your collection, it's a good un'.
The sader but wiser woman for him? June 7 2009
By Roger Bagula - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The confusion for me is what he won in the final confrontation?
The railroad gambling action is fun
and the saloon fights are pretty good too.
I think the theme song is maybe the best part of the movie.
Otherwise it is just another western that appears to be not all that well written? California and Arizona on the Southern Pacific Rail Road
after the 1860's wasn't owned by one man?
Anyway I liked the movie, but can't give it very high marks for plot.
