Product Overview

She's an ex-gun moll and showgirl suddenly forced to protect a kid whose parents have been rubbed out by the mob. But now the mob wants the kid dead too -- but first they'll have to deal with Gloria (Gena Rowlands in an Oscar-nominated performance, Best Actress 1980.) Director John Cassavetes, known for his unique approach to filmmaking, creates a powerful, tension-filled story. An accountant (Buck Henry) is in possession of a ledger which could put a number of mob bosses behind bars for a long time. Before he is killed, however, he manages to entrust the ledger and his son to a neighbor, Gloria, for protection. Gloria reluctantly takes the kid on the run while keeping the mob at bay, sometimes at the point of a gun. Finally, tired of running, she decides to confront them head-on!

ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review ...Precisely because the material of this movie is so familiar, almost everything depends on the performances. And that's where Cassavetes saves the material and redeems the corniness of his story. Rowlands propels the action with such appealing nervous energy that we don't have the heart to stop and think how silly everything is... Gloria is tough, sweet and goofy.
