Definitely worth repeat viewings
Very entertaining film worth repeat viewings. One of Gregory Peck's best. I usually don't agree with Leo Maltin's ratings and I certainly don't agree with his 2.5 star rating on this one.
I enjoyed this movie so much, and I have to say that the lead characters played their parts to the hilt. I would enjoy watching this movie again. So true to life the emotions, the highs and lows of gambling.
Gregory Peck At His Best !
- DON RILEY
I think this is a vastly underrated performance by Gregory Peck, here. He contributes a multitude of emotions in this role and they all work. He has an excellent supporting cast. Ava Gardner is good , but I believe this is one of Gregory Peck's finest acting jobs. Although it will never appear in print that way. This also is a better film than it gets credit for. Five Stars.............
"The Great Sinner" - The Horrors of Addiction
- Raymond Banacki
Just a correction to the introduction, Christopher Isherwood is not the author of "Cabaret"; he is the author of the celebrated collection of short stories, "Berlin Stories".

There are certain actors who can take a so so script and make it great. Unfortunately, Gregory Peck and Ava Gardner are not those actors. For a movie with them in it to be great or even good you need writing of a high order, like Horton Foote/Harper Lee (To Kill A Mockingbird) or Joseph Mankewiecz (Barefoot Contessa) provide, and with apologies to the great novelist Christopher Isherwood, the screenplay for this movie is far from his best work. Therefore, despite a fine supporting cast (Melvin Douglas, Walter Huston, Frank Morgan et al) and some interesting takes on gambling addiction, this film is a bit of a snore. Give it a C plus.
Did Gregory Peck die?
- Jim Miller
My DVR was out of sync with the TCM settings, and I missed the end of the movie. I last saw Peck sick in bed being consoled by Ava Gardner.Would somebody who might read this review, please email me at email@example.com and let me know how it ended.Thanks

The Great Sinner
- judy d
This was one of the best classics I have seen in a long time. This movie kept me so involved with the characters and their wonderful acting, not to mention Pauline's (Ava Gardner's) beauty and consuming love for Fedja (Gregory Peck), and his obsessive gambling and love for her, but also the intriguing theme of this exciting film. I would love to purchase this film and view time to time to refresh my memory of how one can get so obsessed with another person or action! What a terrific film....

Ava Gardner at her most beautiful and Gregory Peck at his most delicate and loveable. HE TAKES YOUR BREATH AWAY!
