This black and white classic from the 30's, can only be described as touching. It has the flavor of "It's A Wonderful Life" and the tempo of slapstick humor from days gone by. When a hustler finds love, to what extent is he willing to give up, or to what extent is he willing to go, to hang on to the woman he loves. The hustler's life becomes a family affair. While pool was seen as a gentlemen's sport during these times, the hustler's lifestyle was still considered shady by many. This was nothing short of fun and sweet. It is an hour-long movie that you can appreciate. On a side note, the pool playing, although brief, was completely artistic and hilarious.
