Overview

A very young Loretta Young stars in this domestic drama in which a naïve department store clerk falls for an inveterate gambler. The clerk, Buster Green, falls in love with handsome Wallie Dennis (Norman Foster) at a dance and marries him after a whirlwind romance. But their wedded bliss is ruined by Wallie's gambling habit and a pregnant Buster is forced to return to the Mayfield Department Store counter. In an effort to salvage her crumbling marriage, Buster plays on a dark horse to win the Big Race but is cheated out of her prize by unscrupulous bookie Martie Happ (Noel Madison). An angered Wallie picks a fight with Happ and is arrested by the police. Buster, meanwhile, delivers a baby girl and Wallie, who has been released due to the happy circumstances, bets that their next child will be a boy.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
Not yet a top star, Loretta Young is awarded second billing after comedy relief Winnie Lightner in this topical melodrama about the ravages of gambling. But she certainly is the film's main focal point and delivers a surprisingly potent performance as the beleaguered sales clerk. Norman Foster, who replaced the younger Tom Brown, does fine as the gambler and the Warner Bros. stock company provides the usual tough-talking mise-en-scéne. Star billed Winnie Lightner is, well, Winnie Lightner, and a small dose of Winnie goes a long way.
