PlotEdit

A nightclub singer, Georgia King, has been seeing Steve Maddux, a gambler. After another gambler, Felix Bender, ends up dead after a dispute between them, Steve goes to Miami, where club owner Joe Marino and wife Ruby welcome him. Steve agrees to work for Joe after losing $50,000 in a crooked card game.

Newspaper columnist Don Corwin and a cop, Bill Fellows, begin looking into Bender's death. Don falls for Georgia, even though Fellows warns him that she's been keeping company with a criminal. After an encounter between Don and Steve, a thug named Candy takes it upon himself to beat up Don, putting him in the hospital.

After causing Ruby to be killed by mistake, Steve makes an enemy of Joe, and they end up shooting one another. Steve dies in Georgia's arms.

ReceptionEdit

Critical responseEdit

Film critic Bosley Crowther gave the film a lukewarm review, "There are gun fights, slugging matches and gambling sessions of the usual hard-boiled sort—and, except for a certain flair in dialogue, it is just another one of those things."[3]
