The acting is better than the plot.
13 October 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Knight's Gambit" stars Eleanor Parker and Chester Morris and this is the best thing going for the show. The pair (particularly Parker) did a really nice job--but I also thing they're better than the script...which was only fair at best.

A government official (Morris) is hanging out on vacation in Majorca--and making a total fool of himself due to his very heavy drinking. At the time, Mr. Knight is making a play for the man's secretary (Parker). What the secretary does not know is that Knight is working undercover and he's actually trying to use her to get the goods on her boss. What are 'the goods'--information that would prove he's been taking bribes from organized crime.

This plot just didn't go much of anywhere for me and felt flat and unexciting. It did have its moments but nothing more.
