Hidden within the nightclubs of Milan are private casinos that offer illegal gambling to the highest bidders. Into this world comes Luca Altieri, the fastest card shark in town. Now, he's caught the eye of "The President", the underworld's most powerful figure, and he's no longer working alone. What's worse, Luca's fallen in love with Maria Luisa, the gorgeous girlfriend of the President's power-mad and insanely jealous son, Corrado. Can Luca make off with the girl and his winnings without getting killed? Even a betting man like Luca has to admit that the cards are stacked against him this time.

Better known for his giallo and polizia thrillers, Gambling City shows that director Sergio Martino could also handle lighter fare with great ease. Working off of a script he co-wrote with frequent collaborator Ernesto Gastaldi, Gambling City is an exciting and action-packed thriller with plenty of romantic and comedic touches populated by likeable characters. The first-rate cast is lead by Luc Merenda as Luca, supermodel Dayle Haddon, Enrico Maria Salerno and Corrado Pani, and filled with beautiful locations in Milan and the French Riviera. In the tradition of such card shark classics as The Sting, God of Gamblers and Rounders, Gambling City is a royal flush of style and entertainment.

NoShame Films is proud to present Gambling City for the first time on video in the U.S. in its original widescreen aspect ratio, digitally re-mastered from the original negative, uncut and uncensored.

This DVD is dedicated to the memory of Corrado Pani (1936-2005).
