Movie Info

Adopting a surprisingly effective Southern accent, Vienna-born Joseph Schildkraut plays the title role in Mississippi Gambler. Schildkraut is cast as ruthless but basically decent cardsharp Jack, whose latest sucker is old man Blackburne. To save the honor of Blackburne's lovely daughter Lucy (Joan Bennett), Jack purposely loses the climactic poker game. Many of the sets and background extras in the film had previously been seen in Universal's Show Boat, which also featured Schildkraut. Mississippi Gambler was refashioned as a Tyrone Power vehicle in 1953. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
