Today's MFASA features the only film to star both the King of Cool(Republican and later in life born-again Christian, Steve McQueen) and the Queen of Hot(sweet Lutheran girl Ann-Margret). McQueen's the title character, a young hotshot card player who goes up against the Man(Edward G. Robinson) in a high tension poker game in Depression-era New Orleans. A-M(as Melba, the bad girl or "Ginger" of the film) and Tuesday Weld(as Christian, the good girl or "Mary Ann" of the film) are the women in his life. They both look more like swingin' 60s chicks than 1930s women but hey, they're both in their prime here so who cares?
Some classic posters for it-
McQueen in a very enviable situation:
“How do ya like your steak, Kid?”
“I like it fine.”
Hey , where’s the FREEPER whose username comes from that movie? Lancey Howard?
I came here to make “Toronto Kid” jokes and chew bubblegum. And I’m all out of bubblegum.
