Karel Reisz directs his first American film in which James Caan plays a professor of literature at a New York university who is a compulsive gambler. He can't seem to quit or win, and falls into the mob for $40,000. "James Caan's virtuoso performance establishes him as one of the most dynamic actors in film today. He is the epitome of surface cool concealing unbearable tensions." - Arthur Cooper, Newsweek.
