Very early pro-gambling talkie plods along very slowly.
Leslie Henson hams it up terribly with Gordon Harker playing his usual role as a cockney (this time as a butler).
The plot involves an anti-gambling JP and a couple of 'lads' (of middle age) persuading him to gamble. Cheaply made with no orchestra and painful acting from the non-star characters. Henson's tendency to plod excessively and lead an unnecessarily long pause between lines is exaggerated in this film - and acting drunk is never actually funny anyway.
Joke - "An abstainer is a gentleman what only likes to drink when he's by himself".
