  • Better that half of regular films shown on TCM

    Claire Trevor and Eugene palette are good company when paired with All American Tom Brown and Rob Lowe. This is a time capsule of travel on the Steam ships of the 1930's t he end of an era. The story is about a pro gambler, an occupation found on river steam boats and transoceanic liners. Trevor plays a wanna be actress like Rowe, is in 2nd class. They put their funds together and try to win money for themselves an Brown, who turns out to be his son. This coincidence is not to implausible because of the number of people who traveled in first class. The film is funny, clever with good dialect. It has a happy ending, with all scores settled. Should be a DVD, but at least TCM should show it. When I see so many bad films. (yes, even the golden era made terrible films), why not dig this out of the vault?

  • Ignored little classic

    Do not why this film is not played on TCM. It is a 1930's classic , with Claire Trevor, Eugene Pallette one of the great character actors with the gravely voice, and Tom Brown, one of the good looking actors who had a short run at fame. This film captures an era, as short as the American West. Trans Ocean luxury travel lasted for a few years. Although most of the passengers were in steerage, the name given to the lowest class of passengers, The number of people in first and second class was few. The danger to these passengers, was not limited to ice bergs. They were the prey of the professional gambler, who may have been given the name "river boat gambler" in the previous century when steamboats carried a few passengers in luxury (for its time). Given the availability of "suckers" captive in one place, with little to do, high stakes gambling was common.Edmund Lowe, an actor with roots in Silent Films, plays a professional gambler, who turns into the hero, when he saves his son from the Kleptomaniac witch, who tries to coerce the young, wealthy back bay Bostonian, into smuggling pearls into the USA. Brown, in a fit of panic, tried to jump overboard, but is saved by Trevor, who is with Lowe, who takes an interest in Brown only to learn that he is a son of a short marriage that was broken up by the class differences existing before WWI. The plot may seem contrived, but its done so well that the film deserves more attention from critics and TCM. Its entertaining, a glimpse of a time gone by, and it has a happy ending.
