Nick Venizelos, an immigrant Greek barber, has an uncommon affinity for poker and other sorts of wagering and a group of his friends bankroll him in a big game, where his weakness for pretty blondes is taken advantage of by sleazy operator Sleepy Sam who cleans him out in a rigged game. Nick accepts help from his buddy Jack as they turn the tables on the grifters, but triumph soon changes to tragedy. Written by

Did You Know?
The movie was made to capitalize on the success of Little Caesar
(1931). Edward G. Robinson
insisted that the script be re-written to make his character, Nick Venizelos, a more sympathetic gangster and less of a copy of his "Little Caesar" character, Rico Bandello. See more
According to video commentators Ursini and Silver, Robinson starred as Luis Pasteur, a role that was played by Paul Muni. Also they credit "Scarface" as a Universal picture. It was actually a Caddo Picture released by United Artists. See more
