the only game in town (1970) - george stevens

Will Las Vegas dancer Fran Walker (Elizabeth Taylor) fall for the piano playing smoothie Joe Grady (Warren Beatty), or will she run off and marry her ex lover before Grady loses all their money gambling?  Who cares.  I certainly didn't, and l sat all the way through the bloody thing.  'The Only Game In Town' has the odd bit of decent dialogue, but don't waste your time with it.  In fact, l'll do you a favour and let you know the outcome.  They fall in love and stay together.  Yawn.
