| Edward G. Robinson plays a huge jerk in this interesting film about gambling...
In one of his more unlikable roles apart from his gangster films, Edward G. Robinson plays Buck Turner--a compulsive gambler. In Buck's case, much of his problem stem from his strong need to be a big shot. Again and again, he makes fortunes and blows them because of his gambling. During one of his periods where he swears off gambling, he meets and marries a nice lady, Marge (Genevieve Tobin) on the condition that he not gamble. But being an addict, he soon is playing the big man and starts back to his old ways. Eventually, the wife has had enough and she takes a powder. He eventually returns to her and makes a lot of promises, but he's soon back to his old ways. The event that eventually destroys the marriage completely is when he comes home with a racing dog, Dark Hazard. So how does Val (Glenda Farrell) figure into all this as well as an old flame named Press? See the film.

While I liked most of the film, as it was a nice portrait of addiction and didn't cop out with a happy ending, this ending was a bit strange and anti-climactic. Still, Robinson and the gang did a nice job in this one and it's worth seeing.
