About High Stakes

Hard boiled tales of tough molls and trigger happy gangsters, screwball chases, and wartime intrigue are spun together in a classic Hollywood daydream, with a delightfully modern twist. Discovering just who fits where, and how they pay for it, is only half the fun of High Stakes, a hilarious send up of the 40's film noir adventure.
