Audience Reviews for A Big Hand for the Little Lady
Joanne Woodward is pretty good as the meek little wife who has to take her husband's (Henry Fonda) place at the poker table after he falls ill. She of course knows nothing about the game and learns as she goes against some obnoxious town moneybags, one of whom is Jason Robards Jr. Saying any more would be spoiling the fun.
Charming comedy with wonderful supporting cast.
As the movie advances, you'll be dying to know how it turns out. DON'T read any spoilers! Trust me!
