The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

kind of a western, but in gambling houses, not so many horses.
Some fun names in this one... Chester Morris (Boston Blackie) , Lloyd Corrigan (who doesnt seem to be related to Ray, but they DID make a film together), Lyle Talbot, and a young Nancy Kelly. Even Dick Elliot, the mayor from Andy Griffith. In Gambler's Choice, a group of kids that grew up together, running scams here and there, meet up again as adults. Except that now, Mike is a cop, and the others still aren't grown up yet, running gambling shops and helping a friend throw the election the right way. When people start getting shot dead, the cops vow to track down the killers. Gambling houses are raided. It's all pretty formula. Good guys against the organized crime guys. All done in 66 minutes. Directed by Frank McDonald, king of the old westerns. It's okay.... i caught this one on Midnight Movies channel. Not bad.
