Beautiful Mary returns from Chicago to her small hometown after many years, wearing a mink coat and carrying an expensive cigarette case. Her arrival causes long standing enmities to surface between two of her old boyfriends, loafing gambler Kenny Veech and debonair Lew Lentz, owner of a local nightclub. Their deep-seated animosity repeatedly results in antagonism and fights as they compete for Mary’s affections. Kenny’s friend Gitlo, a bartender in Lentz’ club, enlists Kenny in an aborted plan to rob Lentz of $15,000 in profits from sponsoring a local carnival. Lentz retaliates by framing both men for murder.

“It’s interesting to see Ava Gardner before she rose to fame and almost too much of dazzling beauty, while she is still young and fresh, but you can see that she is rising. The main interest of this film, however, is Victor McLaglen as the bartender, who knows too much, is too much involved, has too many concerns and does too much in vain efforts to get things straight, and ultimately almost succeeds – but has to pay for it. George Raft is as antipathetic as ever, and you might have some objection against the end. It’s a noir but with a happy end, but that end drags the film down. Tom Conway makes a good impression but has to pay for it. Ava Gardner, though, impeccable in her brilliant beauty, doesn’t have to pay for anything.”
