While there certainly was a lot of other drama going on in Cabaret, it also had an abortion in it.

Thanks for mentioning this great romantic film. Dick Powell and Evelyn Keyes play off each other just beautifully.

Since the Yukon Gold Rush was all over Alaska AND Canada, and since movies about it play fast and loose with the geography,  I'll include :

BELLE IF THE YUKON

GOLD RUSH (CHAPLIN )

ROAD TO UTOPIA

THE SPOILERS

KLONDIKE FEVER

THE FAR COUNTRY

THE CALL OF THE WILD

I totally agree about "A Big Hand for the Little Lady"- it's one of my favorite "cardshark" con films along with "The Sting". Both films have such great ensemble casts and I try never to miss Joanne Woodward who is such a special actress.

Just remembered this Italian film from the 70s with Bette Davis and Joseph Cotten. The English title is THE SCIENTIFIC CARDPLAYER.
