Gable is a swank card gyp who hits the trail heavy for the women, but in his supporting company, from Lombard down, Paramount doesn’t cheat him at all. It is largely the good cast, direction and some of the comedy arising mostly out of the wisecracks that makes No Man of Her Own acceptable film fare.

Gable was under loan to Par for this one, his first away from the Metro apron-strings.

Story revolves around a crooked gambler who marries a small-town girl on a bet and finally does time in order to clear the mud off his feet for her.
