Plot Sypnosis:

After a player is discovered to have cheated his way to winning at a high-stakes card game, he’s sentenced to a no-trial hanging, despite the objections of fellow player, Van Morgan. Although the men responsible for the murder go unpunished, it’s not long before a cowboy-garbed killer begins stalking those involved with the crime and killing them off one by one. Is Van dispensing his own breed of outlaw justice or could another, even more vengeful assailant be responsible for the bloodshed?

A creative blend of old-fashioned Hollywood Western sensibilities with a twist-filled whodunit, acclaimed Western director Henry Hathaway’s (True Grit) unique thriller 5 CARD STUD stars Academy Award® nominee Robert Mitchum (The Night of the Hunter), Rat Pack member Dean Martin (Ocean’s 11), cult character actor Roddy McDowell (Fright Night), two time Emmy® nominee Inger Stevens, plus an early performance from future star Yaphet Kotto (Alien). Juxtaposing exciting action sequences with unexpectedly mean-spirited murders, all leading to a very giallo-esque final act, Vinegar Syndrome Labs proudly brings this unique Hollywood genre hybrid to Blu-ray for the first time, freshly restored in 4K from its 35mm camera negative!
