Audience Reviews for The Lady Gambles


**1/2 (out of four) It's almost always worth a seeing a Barbara Stanwyck movie. "The Lady Gambles" allows Stanwyck to shine, but the story is more simplistic and cumbersome. Stanwyck and her husband (Robert Preston) find themselves in Las Vegas. Stanwyck becomes obsessed with gambling and falls in with a bad crowd.
