Steven McQueen is The Cincinnati Kid
Tonight on TCM (Turner Classic Movies) at 8PM EST... they are showing one of my favorite Steven McQueen films of all time. Before Rounders, the poker movie was The Cincinnati Kid. FYI, if you haven't seen it, they don't play hold'em. Check it out. Set in the backdrop of the seedy back room card games in New Orleans, a young poker player is attempting to take down the best poker player in the world. The film features a hot Ann-Margaret and a very drunk Edward G. Robinson. Rounding out the cast are Karl Malden and Tuesday Weld.
