Always admired Edward G. Robinson in all his films, he has never given a poor performance and will be remembered for as long as people enjoy great acting talent. His role in this picture was completely out of character, where he played a compulsive gambler who fell in love with a greyhound DOG, named "Dark Hazard". He tired to marry a woman who really did not love him and gave him a hard time throughout the picture. Edward G's real love was Glenda Farrell, veteran screen actress who was suppose to be very sexy according to the 1934 years and was always there to help him out when his wife ran away to another town. I also noticed Sidney Toler(John Bright) in this film, he was the star of the "Charlie Chan" Movies of the 1940's and very popular. This film cannot in any way be critized nor the actors in this film, lets remember, Edward G. Robinson is a National Figure even in 2003, he is on OUR POSTAGE STAMP!
