Storyline

Returning to New Orleans, following four years of army service in Texas in the 1840s, Captain Vance Colby finds his father, a professional gambler, has been killed. The police tell him his father was killed while caught cheating in a card game by Andre Rivage, an arrogant young dilettante. Vance protests that his father was an honest gambler and never used marked cards, but the police inspector tells him there were witnesses. Aided by a riverboat owner, Captain Barbee, and his daughter, Melanie, Vance sets out to clear his father's name and avenge his death. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Iron Mistress, Mississipi Gambler, Count of Monte Cristo
9 December 2011 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

If you take the main characters from "The Iron Mistress" (1952), and "The Mississipi Gambler" (1953), which are the gambler, the noble brother and the proud sister, and add the story of the Count of Monte Cristo you will have this film. It could have been a flop, but having Irving Wallace to do the screenplay made quite a difference. Dale Robertson is Vance Colby that comes back from the war and besides almost getting killed, finds out that his father, a notorious gambler has been murdered at the casino. His mission becomes to kill every man that took part in the murder of his father. This film came out surprisingly good, as good as the two others that inspired it, and on a much lower budget. Dale Robertson gives good performance as Colby, Debra Paget a bit out of character. I rate it 8 out of 10.
