TWENTY-FOUR HOURS IN THE LIFE OF A WOMAN has been published in 1927.
In Monaco, a wealthy widow, who's 42 years old, spends her spare time observing the hands of the gamblers. One night, she remarks a compulsive gambler, a young man who suddenly leaves the casino in a desperate state of mind. Fearing that he might commit suicide, she follows him and spends the night with him. The next day, the young man promises to her that he will give up his habit and return home. But his obsession will be stronger than his wish.
