Enjoyable Programmer
12 March 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

In this decent little programmer, Eddie Quillan plays a jockey who throws a race under the influence of Marian Nixon and shady operator Lew Cody.

Director Albert Rogell handles the story well; Eddie Quillan, who never impressed me when he was working for Sennett, is good enough in his role, but, as might be expected, James Gleason as his trainer and Lew Cody as the bad guy own the scenes they are in.

The onsite sequences, including racetracks and stables, lend this one an air of realism. If the occasionally poor sound of the version TCM runs and hackneyed plot don't put you off, you should find this a pleasant early sound picture.
