Paulette Goddard carries film.
13 November 1999 | by (New York City, NY) – See all my reviews

Paramount put Paulette Goddard in this comedy-adventure playing a compulsive gambler on the run for being in debt to gambler Fred Clark. She manages to escape his willingly open arms, only to be pursued by a private eye (MacDonald Carey) across the country This was not the typical Paramount stuff that comedies were made of. Even though it was directed by George Marshall, an ace at this sort of fare. It had a weak script and MacDonald Carey, although a good actor, didn't have the charisma or box-office following of a Cooper, Milland or MacMurray, Paulette's past leading men. So, it was up to Goddard to carry the film. It was made in 1948 and she was till on top. The film went on to have a semi-successful run.

This is not on video and rarely seen on TV.
