Weird but fun movie. God example of how the motion picture production code could actually make a film better. The stage play it was based on was set in a brothel. The movie in a gambling den. In the play, the heroine became addicted to drugs. In the movie, she became a gambling addict. The changes helped turn it from a straight-forward morality tell into an odd piece of film noir.
And a young Gene Tierney has to be in the running for the best looking woman of all time.
"There are men, in all ages, who mean to exercise power usefully; but who mean to exercise it. They mean to govern well; but they mean to govern. They promise to be kind masters; but they mean to be masters." Daniel Webster
