Ellen Crane screws one guy after another in this film
30 January 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Paulette Goddard plays a very despicable woman in this film. Ellen Crane clearly has a MAJOR gambling addiction but it isn't just that she cannot stop gambling but she also continually runs out of her gambling debts. When the film begins, she bets a rich guy and loses--and she had agreed to marry him if she lost. But, being a bad egg, she just sneaks away and leaves the guy flat. Then, a guy who is trying to help someone collect on her bad debt loses her because she once again sneaks off instead of facing up to her gambling losses. Because of everything I'd seen in the first portion of the film, I had a hard time continuing with it to the end. After all, it's hard to care one bit about such a selfish and nasty 'lady'. So is it worth hanging on in this one or would I have been better to have just cut my losses and ended the ordeal?

In hindsight, I should have just cut my losses. The scenes between Macdonald Carey and Goddard were pretty tiresome and the idea got very old very quickly. I didn't like her at all and often didn't understand him. A poorly written film that just didn't improve.
