Storyline

Tired of the dangerous life as gambling boss, Ace Corbin 'retires' from the racket and travels cross-country by train to begin a new life with a new name. On the train, he meets Eleanor and they fall in love. Eleanor is afraid to tell Ace she's a soiled dove and Ace doesn't tell Eleanor of his shady past. Old enemies won't let Ace begin his new life, and old commitments's won't free Eleanor of her sordid ties. Ace's old life and Eleanor's deception collide with the typical results. But love conquers all! Written by Debbie Dunlap <dwdunlap@erols.com>

Fun with a bunch of crooks
2 February 2002 | by (San Jose, CA) – See all my reviews

Tidy web of a plot. Deception abounds, but luckily the audience is the first to know. It's just fun waiting for the characters to discover their mutual deceptions. Every principal character is a racketeer; there are no innocents. Cary Grant's character is, of course, the most charming criminal of the bunch.
