In today’s modern society, land based and online casinos have become extremely popular and are seen as an acceptable form of entertainment. However this was not always the case. Not too long ago, gambling was frowned upon within many social circles. A woman’s involvement in the casino industry was certainly considered taboo. These are the main themes that are explored in the classic 1942 American Film called Lady for a Night. This black and white film stars Joan Blondell and John Wayne and was received with much enthusiasm by both film critics and the public.
