Gets down to what it's all about, doesn't it? Making the wrong move at the right time.
Is that what it's all about?

There are two different endings to this film. The first ending, which is shown in all vhs releases, after Stoner loses the coin throw to the shoe shine boy, the boy walks away saying "You're not ready for me yet, Kid." As the boy walks away, Stoner turns around and it fades into the ending credits. In the second (or extended) ending, which was shown on Turner Classic Movies, after Stoner loses the coin throw to the shoe shine boy, the boy leaves saying "You're not ready for me yet, kid." Stoner turns around and continues walking until he sees Christian, then embraces her. The frame then freezes and says "The End" before fading into the credits. See more »
The Kid vs The Man
This was a well written, well acted movie, very cool movie.
Steve McQueen was one cool cat. I especially liked Shooter Karl Malden, the tortured soul who tried to save the Kids soul.
The odds on being dealt a straight flush at 5 card stud are 72,192 : 1
