London, 1950, the war is ended but not for people struggling to make a living. Some people survive because they just won a bet, but only for today, tomorrow has yet to be earned. Harry Fabian is hustler who will make others pay the price for his latest scheme but now he will have to pay up with his own life. His woman loves him. She has made so many painful sacrifices to prop him up, but now her love won’t be able to purchase him even a third class ticket on the train leading to dawn tomorrow. What makes her stick around for more pain from Harry? Tragically Harry is not the kind of man who thinks of anyone but himself; all will be let down. I first saw this film when I was just a boy. It is terrific.

I looked up this actor who plays the Great Gregorius and got a shock. He is not Greek but Polish. Real name Stanislaus Zbysko, a true world class wrestler who thrilled audiences for decades in the early 20’s. But the screen character who protests against the fake and orchestrated wrestling we see on television today was in real life not so honest a competitor himself. Look him up and read some fascinating history.

I read the book today and it puts the movie to shame, like comparing a fatally flawed old man to the fine dreams he once had but let fall through the cracks of a sieve like life. You have to get the book through ILL but it is worth reading. Kersh is a writer that shows you what writing can and should be.
