Kenny Rogers as The Gambler 1980

You Got To Know When To Hold 'Em, Know When To Fold Em...

Kenny Rogers stars as Brady Hawkes, as the titular gambler, embarks on a journey to meet a son he never knew after the latter sends him a letter. Along the way, Brady meets Billy Montana (Bruce Boxleitner) and the two become friends. Billy (while trying to help Brady in his quest) fancies himself as a professional poker player on his own. Although Billy makes mistakes along the way (some of these include: trying to find a way to cheat or do some smooth talking), Brady makes sure that he stays on good behavior during a train ride to Yuma, CA. The duo help prostitute Jennie Reed (Lee Purcell) who has trouble with a train baron. At the end, Brady's son's stepfather (Clu Gulager) is confronted.
