What an ending!
7 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Manly Robert ("Wagon Train") Horton plays a hustler who is engaged to an elegant Vassar-type beauty while still seeing his old girlfriend (Fay Spain), a bohemian writer who no longer lives up to what he has in mind for his future -- even though she has been paying all his bills. When he reveals he's leaving her to marry the Vassar babe, she swears he never will marry the gal. And she means it. He decides to take drastic action. The ending is priceless. Horton and Spain were well matched in their scenes. The plot is not exactly new, but it will keep you in suspense. And the ending will leave you gasping. By the way, and fr what its worth, Spain is a timeless beauty who died much too young..
