A HAZARD OF HEARTS (1987)

Summary

Based on the Barbara Cartland novel of the same name, "A Hazard of Hearts" relates the story of compulsive gambler Sir Giles Staverley, who upon losing his estate, realizes his most important asset: his daughter, Serena (Helena Bonham Carter). In a final game, he bets his daughter's hand in marriage to the evil Lord Wrotham. When he loses, Sir Giles sacrifies his own life rather than return home and tell his daughter that he has lost her in a game of dice. Lord Vulcan, who has witnessed the events, takes pity on Serena, whom he has never met, and challenges Lord Wrotham to another game of dice, in which the winner takes both Staverley Court and Serena. Upon arriving at Staverley Court, Lord Vulcan discovers Serena is more beautiful than he ever imagined.
