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>

Average crime drama; made entertaining by it's cast
13 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A relatively routine crime drama that manages to infuse a rather thin plot with an average degree of tension and pathos. The film does perhaps take a bit too long to cover a far too familiar storyline, but it is reasonably well directed, and is made further palatable it's adept cast - all of whom turn in highly respectable performances that manage to engage the viewer in the plights of the various characters. Cary Grant and Benita Hume are endearing as the protagonists attempting to escape their pasts, Jack La Rue and Arthur Vinton are convincing mobsters, and decent comic relief is provided by Roscoe Karns and Charles Williams (the slightly grating Glenda Farrell is the only major cast member who misses the boat while providing one of her usual tough gal characterizations that feels out-of-place in these proceedings). The film is not particularly memorable once it reaches it's expected conclusion, but it's well-cast ensemble makes it reasonably enjoyable while it's playing.
