| Slightly disappointing period product
Given the array of talent assembled for this project, the result disappointed me. The script is funny and very smart, but Robinson's portrayal of an 1850s casino boss in San Francisco comes off poorly to me, especially as he basically struts and does the same act as his 20s gangster thing, but wearing puffy flamenco shirts. Hopkins is good, and very charming, in her role, which is the center of the film's plot and heart. McCrea is given a fairly one-dimensional lead. Seems to have been some confusion over what kind of film they were trying to make over at Goldwyn studios.
