Movie Info

A fine cast can do little to breathe life into this classic story from Damon Runyon. Sorrowful Jones (Walter Matthau) takes a nine-year-old girl (Sara Stimson) as a marker from a gambler who owes him a ten-dollar bet. Blackie (Tony Curtis) is a gambler who hopes to open a casino at the home of attractive widow Amanda (Julie Andrews). Stimson is delightful, but even she can't save this tepid remake from ending up in the forgettable file.

Audience Reviews for Little Miss Marker

5.5/10. Oddly cast, and it can't compare to the Shirley Temple version. It's fair, mildly entertaining.

Excellent movie, full of laughter and fun. It was interesting to see the character Walter Mattau heart melt for the "marker", Julie Andrews and Tony Curtis were wonderful with their parts as well. Although this is an OLDIE it is a GOODY
