Flame of Barbary Coast Flame of Barbary Coast

The brawling, colorful story of the queen of hearts and the ace of gamblers... with a shock climax such as the screen has never known!

Duke Fergus falls for Ann 'Flaxen' Tarry in the Barbary Coast in turn-of-the-century San Francisco. He loses money to crooked gambler Boss Tito Morell, goes home, learns to gamble, and returns. After he makes a fortune, he opens his own place with Flaxen as the entertainer; but the 1906 quake destroys his place.
