Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The title of The Seduction of Gina is the most tawdry of come-ons: this TV movie was better served (though perhaps not as attractive to the casual viewer) under its original title, Another High Roller. Gina (Valerie Bertinelli), married to a feckless intern, is shy and withdrawn. Upon receiving a $30,000 inheritance, Gina decides to vacation in Tahoe. While at the casino's gaming tables, Gina finds she really enjoys gambling. As the evenings wear on, she also discovers that she can't stop; she has been "seduced" by the gambling bug. In keeping with the film's steamy title, Seduction of Gina was advertised with the full-page image of Valerie Bertinelli in the arms of Michael Brandon, who plays the casino's lawyer (and Gina's erstwhile lover).
