Dec 09, Steve McQueen is the young upstart poker player, Edward G. It's a fantastic cast - McQueen oozes cool, it's special to see Robinson at age 72 deliver a very good performance, Malden plays 'conflicted' well when he's pressured to fix the match, Margret is sexy and has a way of speaking with her eyes, and Weld is incredibly cute but also nuanced.
To top it off, Joan Blondell is the backup dealer, and while her role and performance aren't amazing, it's very nice to see her and Robinson together again nearly three decades after 's 'Bullets or Ballots'.
New Orleans is a fantastic setting and director Norman Jewison makes good use of it. I have to say, I was not all that jazzed about the scene with the cock fight, which is cruel.
And, he's less effective in making the movie feel as though it's in the 's, but maybe that doesn't matter. The poker talk at the tables is pretty authentic, but I always find it amusing that the 5-card stud hands shown routinely in movies are extremely rare.
The ending comes as a jolt and seems abrupt, but perhaps that's because I was thinking how interesting it would have been if it was revealed that Robinson was engaged in a nefarious fix with Blondell.
As it is, the movie is about integrity and dignity, even in what may seem to be an unlikely place, amongst gamblers.
Cheating, and accusations of cheating, are shown more than once to be signs of weakness, whereas real skill is cool and confident, and there is mutual respect between McQueen and Robinson's characters.
How interesting that McQueen falters on the relationship side by being seduced by Margret, though even then he doesn't deny it or make excuses.
Antonius B Super Reviewer. Jan 19, A little bit o'fun as McQueen leads a pretty gosh darn good cast in this typical tale of the kid against the powers that be.
Eddie G. Malden's good as the buddy, Weld as the good girl, and Margret as, what else, the bad girl, surprise.
Kevin M. W Super Reviewer. Apr 18, What a classic! Right up there with "The Hustler" and "The Sting".. Sean G Super Reviewer.
Aug 29, Good simple film about poker. It's great fun to watch McQueen and Edward G. Nothing groundbreaking, but very entertaing with a great ending.

The world premiere was held at the Saenger Theatre in New Orleans on October 15, with a nationwide release on October On November 5 the film opened in Los Angeles.
A Blu-Ray was released on June 14, Upon its release, The Cincinnati Kid was favorably reviewed by Variety which wrote " Martin Ransohoff has constructed a taut, well-turned-out production.
In Steve McQueen he has the near-perfect delineator of the title role. Edward G. Robinson is at his best in some years as the aging, ruthless Lancey Howard Director Jewison can put his cards on the table, let his camera cut suspensefully to the players' intent faces, but a pool shark sinking a tricky shot into a side pocket undoubtedly offers more range.
Kid also has a less compelling subplot. Pressure comes from a conventionally vicious Southern gentleman Rip Torn , whose pleasures include a Negro mistress, a pistol range adjacent to his parlor, and fixed card games.
As Malden's wife, Ann-Margret spells trouble of another kind, though her naive impersonation of a wicked, wicked woman recalls the era when the femme fatale wore breastplates lashed together with spider web.
By the time all the bets are in, Cincinnati Kid appears to hold a losing hand. A retrospective review published by the New York State Writers Institute of the University at Albany also noted the similarities the film had to The Hustler , but in contrast said The Cincinnati Kid ' s "stylized realism, dreamlike color, and detailed subplots give [the film] a dramatic complexity and self-awareness that The Hustler lacks.

Als dieser das mitbekommt, sorgt er dafür, dass Shooter seine Aufgabe verliert, da er ehrlich gewinnen will. Als alle anderen Mitspieler der Pokerrunde bereits geschlagen sind, kommt es zum Showdown zwischen Stoner und Howard.
Der wesentlich ältere Howard wirkte während des Spiels etwas angeschlagen, Stoner hat einen guten Lauf und geht ein höheres Risiko ein.

The others began to drop in and a gig was working. It was nickel-and-dime stuff as long as it was The Kid and The Shooter and Pig, but when Carey and Carmody came in, both of whom bet the Cardinals and had won nicely over the weekend double-header, the play moved, deceptively, from nickel-and-dime to a quarter and a half and then wide open.
It was Wednesday now, eleven in the morning. The game, like an endlessly circling bird, moved with a slow inexorable pace toward the center pot of money that grew magically with each dealt hand; revolving hands of cards, accompanied with a musical comment of silver upon silver tossed into the center of the table as the chant was heard, so soft as to be a litany calling on ghostly assistance and deliverance.
It was the fourth card. Now the whisper and flutter of paper money would wash into the middle of the table. Someone dealt.
The cards sliced through the smoky airless room like silent stealing death. And with each card, face up, a chant of destiny from the dealer, for he was the sole instrument in the life of a rambling-gambling man, bringing face up for all the world to see the next wonderful secret.
There is nothing more for the gambling man. It is all there, sealed in the narrow turn of the next card.
Still queens. He touched it and then the queens slammed down hard on him. Three players dropped out and it was back to the raiser.
He hesitated. He knew three fours could not beat three queens. And to make sure though there was another card coming and another chance there were three queens, it would cost him twenty dollars.
Pig had the fours. The Kid had the queens. Pig played the cards. There was no hope in playing The Kid. And it was not worth twenty dollars to see if The Kid was bluffing.
He folded. The Shooter gathered up the cards and began to shuffle. In his huge hands the cards were like summer moths around a light, fluttering, singing, tightening and then disappearing as he cut them and rippled them again.
The Shooter was acknowledged as the best man with cards along the Mississippi and west to Vegas. He looked over at The Kid who was stacking his half dollars.
