The second of Thomas Meighan's three 1927 vehicles, We're All Gamblers was also the first of two collaborations between Meighan and director James Cruze. Based on Lucky Sam McCarver, a play by Sidney Howard, the story concerns a refugee of the Lower East Side who rises to the uppermost rungs of the nightclub world, all for the sake of a "dame." Boxer Sam McCarver (Meighan) falls in love with society girl Carlotta Asche (Mariette Mische). To prove his devotion, Sam purchases a swank nitery, where he shows up every night at the piano to serenade his sweetheart. When Carlotta is a accused of murder, Sam nobly takes the blame, and for a while it looks as though he's going to make the supreme sacrifice on her behalf. But thanks to a dizzying series of last-reel plot convolutions, Sam is permitted to enjoy a happy ending with Carlotta.
