Rating: 2.5/5 -- Stilted and unrealistic, this Gable vehicle is still arresting because of LeRoy's terse, professional direction and the star's commanding performance, although Corey and Smith give anemic efforts. Full Review

Everything gets jumbled in a mishmashy script that never knows where it's going. Full Review
Associated Press
Jul 25, 2019
In attempting to sketch a portrait of a bigtime casino operator, screenwriter Richard Brooks has jammed the yarn with too many subordinate characterizations which fly off at a tangent. Full Review

Rating: C -- Clark Gable could have played in his sleep his part in this verbose Mervyn LeRoy's family melodrama, set almost entirely within a casino. Full Review

Description by

Career. Love. Family. You play the cards life deals you. Casino owner Charley Kyng has taken plenty of risks through the decades, known plenty of wins and losses. But now the stakes are suddenly raised. Hollywood's legendary King, Clark Gable, portrays Kyng, faced at once with failing health, crooks seeking a big score from his posh establishment and the homelife pressures of a devoted wife (Alexis Smith) and son (Darryl Hickman) who want him to leave the gaming biz.

Product Description:

No one plays the cad with a heart better than Clark Gable, and ANY NUMBER CAN PLAY proves this yet again. Gable is Charley Enley Kyng in this one, head honcho at a casino that he actually tries to run honestly. For the life of him, Kyng can't figure why his estranged wife, Lon (Alexis Smith), and son despise his profession of choice. But when Kyng bails his son out of prison, Lon takes the boy to see his pop's club. In the course of the evening, the heroic Kyng disarms dangerous mobsters and bets his entire fortune against a single roll of the dice. Both wife and son recognize Kyng's manly courage, giving Kyng an opening to win back his family if he plays his cards just right. The film's quick pace, Gable's performance, and Mervyn LeRoy's deft handling of the supporting characters make for a fine piece of entertainment.

Plot Synopsis:

Clark Gable's an ailing casino owner who is used to 20-hour days and high-stakes games. But this time the jackpot is his life, and if he doesn't slow down, his enemies will deal him out--or do him in.
