In this 1973 amateur film, a gambler returns from the grave for another shot at a poker game, after being murdered at his last. The ghostly gambler does not quite make it to the end of his rematch, but his winning hand ultimately earns him the pot. A young Shawn Malone produced this and many other amateur films in Houston during the 1970s, casting his family and friends as the featured players.
