The Only Thing of Interest is the Title!!
7 May 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

If any starlet had a noticeable lisp it was Ruth Hall who had a couple of pretty busy years during 1931,32 - even though her name was usually down the cast list. Here she is the star of a sleazy named poverty rower with nothing much to recommend it. She plays high living, bubbly Sheila who inherits her father's horse racing empire on his death. To outsiders she seems to forget her sorrow pretty fast as, with money burning a hole in her pocket, she is sucked into the world of gambling by Ralph Jordan, her father's crooked partner.

Her co-star was Grant Withers who a couple of years previously had been a young hopeful at Warners. A liking for alcohol as well as disastrous publicity from a doomed marriage to Loretta Young spelled doom for his career. He plays Foster, a horse trainer who knows all about high flying - that's how he lost his money and really wants Sheila to come to her senses. Only she knows how close she is to poverty and when Jordan accidentally sees a letter from her solicitor, wiping their hands of her because of her haste in spending her father's fortune, suddenly he isn't quite so keen on walking down the aisle with her!! One of these movies where you couldn't care less about the lead character, just another petulant heiress wanting to make whoopee!! Quite a lot of potential to make a crime drama concentrating on gambling corruption, it decided to focus on the vapidness of the rich with too much cash and time on their hands!!
