The Gambler is the rags-to-riches story of one of America’s wealthiest and least-known financial giants, self-made billionaire Kirk Kerkorian—the daring WWII aviator, movie mogul, risk-taker, and business tycoon who transformed Las Vegas and Hollywood to become one of the leading financiers in American business. A high school drop-out who bought and sold MGM movie studios 3 times. Built the world’s biggest hotel, also 3 times. Lived to be 100 years old. Etcetera.
