Gambler Rid Riddell wins a racehorse, Tommy Boy, on a bet. Rid consistently wins with the horse in both honestly and dishonestly run races. But before long, Tommy Boy wins a race he wasn't supposed to, and the mob is after Rid. Written by

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Very well done especially considering the year (1931) it was made. Clark Gable was still growing as an actor and it was quite evident that he had the makings of a star. I thought the acting was excellent and never got bored throughout. The King didn't come into the movie until about the 40 minute mark or so ... that was about the only drawback for me. I am amazed at these "new" movies that have an ending you can never understand or that make you feel extremely unfulfilled after spending two (02) hours or so watching them. With the older movies one certainly does not have this problem as they all seem to have a beginning, middle and usually a terrific ending. I'll take the older movies anytime over these over the budget, overblown new ones. I highly recommend this movie as it is entertaining as well as moving.
