One Good Movie - Games of Chance

A weekly newsletter for movie lovers with taste but not much time.

Hi friend,

I don’t gamble.

Bill and Charlie do.

They gamble everywhere.

The allure and seedy sleaze of card rooms, casinos, and racetracks is vivid in Robert Altman’s story of friendship and wagering.

Two men share one true love: gambling.

Actors Elliott Gould and George Segal bounce off each other, like seasoned doubles partners.

Notable, this picture was the first feature film to record audio using an eight-track sound system. The technology freed Altman to develop his overlapping dialogue.

A funny movie about vice.
