A sharply drawn character study set against the backdrop of Depression Era New Orleans, The Cincinnati Kid stars Steve McQueen as an up-and-coming five-card stud specialist looking to prove his mettle by taking on established poker maestro “The Man” (Edward G. Robinson). Ashby’s deft editing helps to make the card table scenes masterpieces of tension, and the central dueling duo are surrounded by a superb supporting cast that boasts Tuesday Weld, Rip Torn, Joan Blondell, and Karl Malden in its number.
