Storyline

Northern lawyer John Reynolds travels to New Orleans to try and clean up the local crime syndicate based around a lottery. Although he meets Julie Mirbeau and they are attracted to each other, the fact that her father heads the lottery means they end up on opposite sides. When her father is killed, Julie becomes more and more involved in the shady activities and in blocking Reynolds' attempts at prosecution. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

A Passable Timekiller
20 June 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

John Wayne battles the forces of corruption down New Orleans way in this passable time-killer.Henry Stephenson as the owner of a lottery game that's been robbing the town blind and Ray Middleton as his right hand man both put in decent performances.There's also a love story here but the sparks between Wayne and Ona Munson don't fly too far.The ending with biblical overtones that could have stood some better special effects,but all in all this film is fun to watch.
