Storyline

Mary now runs a bookstore in L.A. with her grandfather, whose past gambling excesses have left her hating everything about the pastime. Unfortunately she falls for Larry, who makes his living in this very line of work. He vows to change but going to Las Vegas to get married may not be the best choice for them. Indeed, Mary's forefathers all had gambling in their blood and if she does ever get to try the tables anything could happen. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Good bet
13 March 2000 | by rupieSee all my reviews

This old-time comedy stands up pretty well and holds your interest throughout. The characters are sympathetic and well-drawn, and the story line is intriguing. Aided by a good script and fine acting from lead Bob Young, and from Frank ("Wizard of Oz") Morgan and James Gleason as Sam. Interesting for the presence of Barbara Hale, later to be Perry Mason's secretary Della Street.
