The Gin Game (1980). NOT AVAILABLE ON DVD. A great comedy with a serious side. Garnered four Tony Award nominations: Best Play, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Director. The Gin Game ran on Broadway for 516 performances and subsequently toured the nation (with Cronyn and Tandy) to sold-out houses in Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia and a half dozen other cities before touring in England and Russia.
Set in an old folks home, senior citizen Weller Martin (Hume Cronyn) has the disease of Old Age, meets an old woman named Fonsia Dorsey (Jessica Tandy) who's diabetic. They both discuss issues such as society, the hospitals, money, families, and the folks home where they live, over a game of Gin Rummy. Fonsia has never played before so Weller teachers her. Instantly she goes on a winning streak, making it very hard for Weller not to lose his temper. But he does. Both put out an excellent performance with a lot of swearing!
Unfortunately, this play can only be found on VHS and the colors bled, so I had to filter it to Black and White only which gave much better contrast; it looks pretty good as such.
Enjoy! Please Keep seeding.
