This film is, of course, based on the song that Kenny Rogers sang. In that song, however, he is receiving the advice of "know when to hold'em, know when to fold'em, know when to walk away, and know when to run" from an elder experienced gambler. So while Rogers plays the elder gambler in the film, it is Bruce Boxleitner who plays the role that Rogers sang in the song. See more »

boring boring boring
I don't particularly care for kenny rogers or any of the other suspects in this film except perhaps lee purcell...its only called a western because it takes place on a train between el paso and yuma, about 600 miles on a slow train ... the bad guys are headed by harold gould and clu gulagher ... everything is centered around playing poker, hence the title the gambler... not what i'd call the type of role model a father should be to his son ....you won't miss anything if you pass on this hand
