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 »

Great story telling from Hollywood's Golden Age
10 December 2003 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

One of the shining examples of the mastery of screenwriting from the Golden Age of Hollywood, by F. Hugh Herbert (not to be confused with comic actor Hugh Herbert from the same era). Viennese-born Herbert (Sitting Pretty, The Moon is Blue, etc.) was also the President of the Screen Writer's Guild.

In this film we experience the commanding embrace of a well-conceived story brought to resplendent life by the notable actor Otto Kruger and a fine cast. Kruger, a major Broadway star of the 1920s later became a reliable and extraordinary screen character actor.

Today gems like this can be encountered only fleetingly on Turner Classic Movies. Worthy of study, they are not to be found on Home Video, another oversight of movie moguls who often sit on top of forgotten gold mines while churning out garbage that sustains illiteracy and decimates popular values. This is just one of hundreds for which we owe Ted Turner a debt of gratitude.
