Storyline

Toni Bradley comes to New York City, from a small town in Iowa, to take over her late father's estate and sporting business, which is primarily gambling on sports events, with a lot of the odds reduced beforehand by henchmen who make offer that can't be turned down by the participants in the games. A group of her father's associates, led by Steve Gordon and Jack Kramer, are trying to take the properties away from her by saying they are running at a loss or just too troublesome to handle. But with the aid of a songwriter, Pinky Tomlin' and his girlfriend, "Babe" Heath, Toni fights back and Steve soon turns to her side, also. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A routine romantic crime drama with a couple of nice songs sung by Pinky Tomlin..
27 January 2003 | by (Pine Grove, California) – See all my reviews

Robert Taylor, in his first leading role, manages a nightclub in this romantic crime drama. Virginia Bruce inherits that club as well as some other sporting places around town: a hockey team, a race track, a dog track, etc. Henry Kolker is a crooked lawyer trying to get her to sell her holdings at a fraction of their true worth on behalf of the other crooked managers. So they stage events to convince her (and a hockey player is killed as a result of a staged fight). Because she is so reluctant, Kolker has Taylor, as the most handsome of the bunch, to woo her and convince her to sell. But of course he falls in love instead, and his actions are then very predictable, as are the actions of the other managers, who do not take Taylor's betrayal lying down. The biggest attraction for me was the appearance of Pinky Tomlin, who has little to do with the plot. He's there to provide some comedy and to sing his very popular song "The Object of My Affection" and another lesser known song he co-wrote. Tomlin hasn't made many movies, so it's worth seeing this one to catch him in it.
