Anachronisms: At one point, a boy hands Hawkes a map of New Mexico with the town of Truth or Consequences clearly marked on it. The town of Hot Springs, New Mexico was not renamed Truth or Consequences until 1950, after the game show of the same name, which host Ralph Edwards said would be broadcast from the first town to rename itself after the show.See more »

You've got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, 1 August 2004
Author: bcolquho from Saco, Maine

I love Kenny Rogers. I had his 1978 album, The Gambler, when I was in high school and college. I started watching The Gambler movies back in 1980 with the first Gambler movie, Kenny Rogers As The Gambler. It's become a series of movies over the past

twenty-four years. The first two installments aired on CBS in the 1980s. The third and fourth installments aired on NBC around the same time. Kenny Rogers is Brady Hawks. Brady's the titular

gambler. He and his sidekick, Billy Montana, traveled throughout

the Old West seeking poker games. In this movie, it's two years after the San Francisco Earthquake, that's 1908. Brady's son,

Jeremiah, has dropped out of Andover, and headed west hoping to meet up with his father. Jeremiah has fallen in with the Wild

Bunch, the last outlaw gang of the Old West, led by Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The ending was historically accurate---to a point. Recent forensic evidence has pointed to a murder-suicide in Bolivia. However, Butch Cassidy's family has never believed that Butch Cassidy died in Bolivia. There are also those who believe

that the Sundance Kid died in the New Jersey State Prison. The conspiracy theories about Butch and Sundance, like those of the Kennedy Assassination, aren't going to go away.
