Performers, Cast and Crew:
This release contains three films from the classic Kenny Rogers television movie series:
THE GAMBLER: Originally airing on television in 1980, THE GAMBLER starred Kenny Rogers as Brady Hawkes (known around town as the Gambler), a man who receives a letter suggesting that his son is in danger. Rushing to his son's defense, Brady teams up with another young man, a card-playing expert named Billy Montana (Bruce Boxleitner). Together, the unlikely pair embark on a journey that may turn out to be as redemptive as it is challenging.
THE GAMBLER: THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES: While attempting to rescue some hostages, gambler Brady Hawks is ambushed by outlaws.
THE GAMBLER: THE LEGEND CONTINUES: Brady Hawks and his irrepressible partner Billy Montana seek justice for the Sioux in this story set in the climactic days of the Indian wars in the Dakota Territory of the late 1880's.
