Trivia

The opening scene features Otto Kruger playing a Pinball Machine. This is the earliest known on-screen appearance of a Pinball Machine in a major production. At the time, flippers had not yet been invented and pinball machines were often used for gambling. There was a lot of public debate at the time as to whether pinball was a game of skill or chance, and it was banned in many parts of the country. The movie played on that debate with Kruger making a bet with his lady-friend, and when complimented for his luck, replies "Not luck - skill." See more »

Formulaic High Gloss MGM

This is a women's picture but it's packed as a mystery. Otto Kruger is the star. He was an interesting actor: He had a long career -- from silents through low budget pictures in the forties. Distinguished looking, doubtless a good actor. But he never made it nor does he ever really convince.

Here he is a hotshot lawyer. He's carrying a still-burning torch for a woman. Women who currently surround him are treated like tramps.

We meet him dispatching one criminal case. Another client comes to him soon after and that's where the real plot begins.

The supporting cast is good. But there is no real mystery. There's no mystery in the sense of who did it; who will be punished, and how and when. Furthermore, there is no mystery about what stereotypes are going to be employed about the various characters.

The supporting cast is fine. But that's what everyone is: supporting cast. The acting is unremarkable. Yes, Una Merkel has her usual verve. But that is an acquired taste. And it's irrelevant to this movie.
