Storyline

Romantic comedy which has Barney Lincoln and Angel McGinnis as a pair of amorous adventurers in the gambling places of London and the Riviera. Barney Lincoln is a rambling gambling man who scores sensational wins at poker and chemin de fer because he has succeeded in marking the original plates for the backs of all the playing cards manufactured in a plant in Geneva and used in all the gambling joints in Europe. In his gambling depredation, Barney is spotted by Angel McGinnis, the daughter of a Scotland Yard Inspector 'Manny' McGinnis on the lookout for a man to do a job. The inspector enlists Barney's help in playing poker with a shady London character whom Scotland Yard wants to force to financial ruin. Written by alfiehitchie

Slight but enjoyable.
10 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

This film was fun, though it's also easy to skip. In some ways, it's quite enjoyable and in others it's a little slight--especially when it comes to the romance. When the film begins, you see that Barney Lincoln (Warren Beatty) is an international playboy who loves to gamble...and win. However, you soon see how he's so good--as he breaks into the company (Mission: Impossible style) that manufactures cards for the casinos. Why? So he can mark the plates and thus be able to read all the cards*. Along the way, he gets hooked up with a screwy girl, Angel (Susannah York). This is problematic, as she then tells her father all about Barney and his incredible card playing...and he works for Scotland Yard. The film, however, doesn't go where you think as Daddy is not interested in arresting Barney but forcing him to do a job for him. What's the job and how will it all work out....well, see the film.

Watching Beatty breaking in and then playing a high-stakes game of poker was very enjoyable. His romance with York, however, never seemed very convincing nor romantic. I think if they'd have improved this angle, they would have made the film more engaging and more of a must-see affair.

*It's hard to imagine no one spotting the marks on the cards-- especially because these are multi-million dollar casinos. This just didn't make much sense.
