Edmund Lowe stars as big-time gambler King Solomon, so named because of his fairness and sagacity. Naturally, our hero has several enemies to whom fair play is anathema. One of these is gangster boss Ice Larson (Edward Pawley), who demands Solomon's cooperation as payment for a gambling debt. But Solomon becomes Larson's best pal when he clears the man of a phony kidnapping charge by romancing Nikki Bradbury (Louise Henry), the wealthy and gorgeous ex-kidnap victim. All of this does not rest well with King Solomon's ever-lovin' girlfriend, whose name is -- what else? -- Sheba (Dorothy Page). Bespectacled crooner Pinky Tomlin, of "The Object of My Affections" fame, guest-stars as "himself."
