I'll Get You for This (released in the US as Lucky Nick Cain) is a 1951 British thriller film by Joseph M. Newman starring George Raft, Coleen Gray, and Enzo Staiola. It was made from an adaptation by George Callahan and William Rose of James Hadley Chase's 1946 book of the same name. The setting was shifted from Las Vegas in the novel to an Italian gambling resort.
It was one of the first productions made by Romulus Films. It was made at Teddington Studios and on location around San Remo on the Mediterranean coast in northern Italy. Production was completed in 1950 but it wasn't released until the following year. The film's sets were designed by the art director Ralph W. Brinton. Established actresses Greta Gynt and Margot Grahame, and future Irish star Constance Smith all make brief appearances. Peter Lorre was initially intended to appear as Massine, but the role eventually went to Charles Goldner.
American gambler Nick Cain (Raft) arrives at the town of San Paola, and befriends shoe-shine boy Toni (Staiola). He discovers he has been framed for the murder of an American Treasury Agent. He escapes with Kay Wonderly (Gray) to a village, leaving her to hide out. Cain gets help from Massine (Goldner), whom he does not trust. He uncovers an international counterfeiting ring, members of which are responsible for the murder.
