A Bunch Of Characters In Search Of A Story
The first several minutes where Ann leaves her abusive father's family for the city looks promising. But once she gets a job there, the vulnerable girl more or less drops out of central focus, and the movie goes with it. What we get instead is a mish-mash of characters having to do with gambling, newspapers, and murder. It's like the three writers each had his own subplots without much blending. On a positive note, catch how legalizing gambling with its tax revenues foreshadows an issue of our own time. Good to see a young Ann Doran, who later became quite a formidable actress as her credits demonstrate, along with old crone Vera Lewis who's enough to scare Superman. All in all, however, it's a flick that can't seem to make up its mind. Too bad.
