Storyline

In this TV-movie, Shirley Jones plays an average American housewife who just happens to be addicted to gambling. The story chronicles how her problem is destroying her "ideal" suburban life and that of her family. It's a stretch to say that the picture is a remake of "The Lady Gambles", but certain elements of that classic Stanwyck flick are present here. Written by Anonymous

Mrs. Partridge addicted to gambling?
10 July 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Shirley Jones gives one of her best performances in this made-for-tv movie of the week. (I used to wait anxiously for each new movie back in the 70's) These were much more entertaining than today's fare. Anyway, Shirley wrecked one marriage with her addiction to gambling and her new husband is unsuspecting of her problem. We (the audience) cringe each time Shirley makes one stupid bet after another with her bookie and even gets the crap beaten out of her one time when she can't pay up. Shirley has long hair in this flick (another rarity, if you are used to seeing her short shag over and over). I don't know if she was nominated for an emmy for this but she should have been as she really sinks her teeth into this role. Good old fashioned drama without todays blood & guts violence or gratuitous four letter words but still entertaining. Don't know if it's on video or not, many of these forgotten made for tv movies are lost and should be found IMMEDIATELY!!
