Gambler John Merrick (Frank Lovejoy) is the head of a bookie syndicate and the newspaper is crusading against him and the rackets, primarily because Merrick is in love with Felice Stuart (Joan Weldon), daughter of the newspaper publisher who can not break up the romance through persuasion. A senate committee investigating crime gets involved, the racketeers, other than Merrick who is a "nice guy", strike back and kill a reporter, and Merrick's own son, Jerry Merrick (Robert Arthur), commits suicide. Merrick, to his own disadvantage, helps bring down the syndicate. Since it is in black-and-white-, deals with crime and was an American-made film, some will call it "film noir" since that seems to be the current guidelines for putting a film in that, at one time limited-and-defined genre. It ain't, and neither are most of the others currently so classified.

Frances Williams was born Frances Jellinek of St. Paul, Minnesota. She started performing when she was 14 and left home when she was 16 as part of an acrobatic troup. Her first oppurtunity to show off her vocal abilities was in George M. Cohan's musical "Mary". She is perhaps best known for her roles in "Artists and Models", "The Cocoanuts" (also with the Marx Brothers, as well as several editions of George White's Scandals. It was in one of those editions in which she is credited as having introduced the Charleston to the general public. Another notable musical was "Everybody's Welcome" in 1932, not a generally well-known show, but best remembered for the introduction of the standard "As Time Goes By", which Miss Williams introduced. She made several film appearances, and only made 5 recording sessions between 1931-1937, on which her vocal abilities are greatly shown. She also did quite a bit of vaudeville, headlining the Palace in twice, once in the early 30's and again in 1950. She made several TV appearances throughout the 50's, before becoming ill with cancer in 1956. Miss Williams had been living with her mother at the Shoreham Hotel. She died at Lenox Hill Hospital on January 27, 1959, surviving her mother, Maude Williams, and brother, William Jellinek.
