Storyline

Casino operator Johnny Lamb hires down-on-her-luck socialite Lucille Sutton as his casino hostess, in order to help her and to improve casino income. But Lamb's pals fear he may follow Lucille onto the straight-and-narrow path, which would not be good for business. So they hire Gert Malloy and Dictionary McKinney, a pair of con-artists, to manipulate Johnny back off the path of righteousness. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Trivia

According to the press book, when director Alexander Hall went to the exclusive Coronado Island Hotel beach to film location scenes, Groucho Marx, Charles Ruggles and sugar heiress [error] were there already, and they became extras in the background of the scene. However, no footage of them remains in the film. See more »

What a jewel!
19 February 2001 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This was a real treat...to catch George Raft and Ida Lupino and one of the best supporting casts I have ever seen, including the little poodle.

Even the names of the characters - one, because of his impeccable English is called "Dictionary" and another "Bicarbonate". The plot is excellent and revolved around the friendship between a shady and illegal casino owner and an impoverished society woman. This evolves into a partnership. Considering this was 1936 (and pre-Hayes) there are some risque lines as when the society woman says to the crook as he drops her off after a night at the casino "what would you like for breakfast?" There are lots of terrific fun turns in this movie and the 3 henchmen are not to be missed. A treasure of a movie. I give it 8 out of 10.
