Synopsis

Barbara Stanwyck and Robert Preston star in this 1940s drama directed by Michael Gordon. David Boothe (Preston) finds his wife Joan (Stanwyck) beaten and bruised after making some enemies in the world of Las Vegas gambling. As he retraces her steps to see how she came to be so deeply involved with these people, he learns how she got drawn in by casino owner Horace Corrigan (Stephen McNally) and how she double-crossed him to get ahead. While the broken and suicidal Joan fights for her life in a hospital bed, David tries to convince her all is not lost.
