Rare, yes but that's all.

I have never seen a Ricardo Cortez's film except this one. It seems it is hard to catch. I don't say it is a film noir, not really as I mean. Rather a sort of mix up between film noir and comedy. A story around a gambling house and a woman reporter. I have seen a thousand films of this kind in my life. I will forget it in a few days. But if you can watch this feature, don't miss it. It is worthwhile for a movie buff like me. I don't know the players, but I certainly have seen them in other films before.

Well folks, that's all you can say about it. Pure product of the thirties and early forties B pictures.
