Starring Alec Guinness, Glynis Johns
Alec Guinness and Glynis Johns are at their best in THE CARD, a story of an enterprising young man determined to succeed in a hard, cruel world. In the course of his upward climb, he meets an equally sharp-witted and conscienceless young dancing-school director. Their various entanglements are happy combinations of the romantic and the treacherous . . . until Guinness’s “card” plays one last, surprising trick.
