Storyline

Gamblers Jim Turner and Valarie part company in Chicago and agree to meet at Saratoga with Jim stopping off at Barrowville en route. There, Jim meets George Mayhew and Eight Ball, a barbershop bootblack, and replenishes his bankroll gambling on pitching horseshoes. George's mother and his sister Marjorie run a boarding house and Jim goes there to live. George and Jim go to Bellport Park and meet "Broadway", owner of "Lady Luck", a thoroughbred race horse. Jim bets on the horse and wins heavily. He falls in love with Marjorie and wins her away from Preston Barrow when he forswears gambling and promises to get a $20-per-week job which represents Peggy's idea of respectability. Christmas Eve, 1934, finds Jim a night clerk in a small Chicago hotel, playing the horses only on paper for his amusement. Jim is given some money by Joe, a pal of gambler/race horse owner Jed Bright, in appreciation for a racing tip he had given. Jim had planned on sending the money to Marjorie's needy mother but...

Watchable
16 January 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

"B" gambling drama with rare starring turn for character actor Barton MacLane. He plays a big shot gambler who meets a woman (Peggy Bates) and falls in love. The problem is she demands he quit gambling or she won't marry him. He tries it for awhile but it doesn't stick. So he gets back into his old ways and that includes old flame Valerie (Ann Sheridan).

Remake of Dark Hazard (1934). I'm not used to seeing MacLane playing a lead character. The closest I can think of is when he played the male lead opposite Glenda Farrell in the Torchy Blane movies. A little far-fetched that Sheridan would be so hung up on MacLane. He's definitely not a ladies man type. Short runtime helps but there's just not a lot of meat on the bone. Watchable and probably more interesting for classic film fans as a curiosity. Like the way MacLane tosses the 1930s slang around though.
