Aces and Eights is a 1936 American western film and is directed Sam Newfield.
Plot[edit | edit source]
Tim Madigan, gentlemen gambler who never carries a gun, befriends Jose Hernandez. After a gambler is killed and false accusations fly, Tim takes refuge at the ranch of Don Hernandez, unaware that he is the father of his new friend, the young runaway Jose. Meanwhile, villians are plotting to take the ranch by forging documents. Tim persuades Jose to return home and then, in the attempt to save the ranch, plays a poker game where he stakes his winnings against the villian's saloon and must play with aces-and-eights (famous "death hand" held by Wild Bill Hickok when he was killed by Jack McCall).
