GAMBLER, THE (Jul 26, 1973) Revised draft screenplay by James Toback
[New York]: Chartoff-Winkler Productions, July 26, 1973. Vintage original film script, 11.5 x 9″ (29 x 23 cm.), leatherette stenciled wrappers, brad bound, 122 pp., light wear to yapped edges of covers, just about fine.
James Toback wrote and directed this neo-noir film about a compulsive gambler, starring James Caan, Paul Sorvino and Lauren Hutton.
Grant, p. 253: “[Film’s greatest strength is] the exploration of the self-destructive impulse behind [the hero’s] gambling; he knows he’s going to lose, in a sense he wants to lose, but this if anything enhances the rush of each new hazard.”
