Chamagne Charlie (1936)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

B-film from Fox has a gambler known as Champagne Charlie (Paul Cavanagh) getting behind on debts so he decides to marry a society girl (Helen Wood) so that he can get her money but the poor sap ends up falling in love. There's really not too much to say about this film. Everything from the direction to the screenplay to the actor are rather bland but the film does move pretty well and thankfully only lasts 58-minutes. The film would have benefited more had the screenplay tried something different but you should know how all of this ends.
