Ex-racketeer slugs a cop and goes to prison to keep from being involved in crime again. On the day of his parole, his plans are dashed. It's up to a brash newspaper reporter to figure out what happened.
Silver Queen stars Priscilla Lane as Coralie Adams, a young woman from a wealthy family whose father (Eugene Palette) loses it all -- a silver man -- in a high stakes poker game played with a professional gambler, James Kincaid (George Brent). Kincaid, learning that Gerald Forsythe is engaged to Coralie, gives the deed for the mine to him. Cabot is a bad lot, despite the society trimmings, and just keeps the mine for himself.
An real card shark, Coralie gambles in order to pay her father's debts.
The film takes place in New York and San Francisco in the 1870s.
This just isn't much of a movie. Priscilla Lane is miscast. She was a lovely woman and had a very sweet, vivacious quality, but the role called for someone a little tougher. The original star was to be Ellen Drew. The production company borrowed Brent, Cabot, and Lane from Warners. They should have borrowed perhaps Ida Lupino.
Not sure if it was intended to be a B movie, though it comes off like one.
