Steve McQueen leads an all-star cast in this story of an up-and-coming young poker player out to make a name for himself when the longtime master of the game comes to town--a young poker player who will stop at nothing to become the greatest as The Cincinnati Kid. New Orleans. The Great Depression. Eric Stoner (McQueen--Bullitt, The Sand Pebbles), known as The Cincinnati Kid, loves life, women . . . but most of all he loves poker. Now, when poker champion Lancey Howard, known as The Man (Edward G. Robinson), comes to town, Stoner arranges for a place at a game with Howard. But when he learns that the dealer has rigged the game for Howard to lose, Stoner insists, that win or lose, the game be fair.
