FULL SYNOPSIS

In this light drama, [[Performer~P10097~Clark Gable~clarkgable]] once again played his stock-in-trade role of a rogue with a heart of gold. Charlie King ([[Performer~P10097~Gable~clarkgable]]) runs a casino, but, in a business that thrives among the unscrupulous, Charlie takes pride in running an honest game and treating his customers with fairness and respect. However, Charlie's wife Lon ([[Performer~P66344~Alexis Smith~alexissmith]]) doesn't care if he runs a fair game -- she regards gambling as a dirty and corrupt business, and no matter how honest Charlie may be, he's still involved in a wicked activity. Charlie's son Paul ([[Performer~P32165~Darryl Hickman~darrylhickman]]) is also against him; when Paul gets in trouble and Charlie bails him out of jail, he refuses to leave with him, instead going home with mother. Charlie invites Paul to see what his casino is like, and Lon agrees that Paul should know just what his father does. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
