  1. The issues involving gambling has been a popular topic amongst scholars for many years. At first glance gambling may seem unenchanting, however its study is a necessity for any one wishing to intellectually advance beyond their childhood. Until recently considered taboo amongst polite society, its influence on western cinema has not been given proper recognition.
