The Gambler and the Lady is a 1953 British crime film directed by Patrick Jenkins and Sam Newfield and starring Dane Clark, Kathleen Byron and Naomi Chance. It was made by Hammer Films.

Synopsis

An American gambler, Forster (Clark), aspires to find acceptance amongst the British nobility after falling in love with the aristocratic Lady Susan Willens (Chance), a prominent blueblood who has actually been pursuing him. To start a relationship with her, he dumps his girlfriend (Byron), a singer in one of his nightclubs who becomes murderously jealous. He must also deal with mobsters who try to take over his nightclubs. Swindled by an upper-class con-man (Ireland) into voluntarily selling out to the mobsters anyway all his valuable assets including the gambling-casino nightclubs, a racehorse and a boxer, in order to invest in a gold-mining scam that is eventually unmasked as a fraud, he finds himself broke and in a gunfight with the mobsters, who have been deceived by a gang member with a grudge against him into thinking that they need to kill him. Non-fatally wounded in the gunfight, he is about to make an escape from his mobster pursuers when his jilted girlfriend the nightclub singer vindictively tries to kill him by hitting him with her car. He is struck a glancing blow that knocks him down, and she flees the scene. At that point, Lady Willens, with Forster's butler, arrive on the scene and come to his aid. Forster, still alive, looks up from the gutter in which he is lying and says, "Susan" with relief and gratitude but then collapses. Susan has told him that he will be alright and tells the butler, "Let's bring him home," leaving the audience to wonder, as they pick him up and carry him to Susan's car, whether he is still alive or whether he will survive his injuries.
