Greyhound isn't about a dog, nor does it have anything to do with a cross-country bus. The title character is a slick, underhanded gambler, played by William H. Tooker. After successfully fleecing one sucker after another for nearly 5 years, Greyhound meets his match in the form of one Deep Sea Kitty (Elita Proctor Otis). Catherine Carter co-stars as Greyhound's long-suffering missus, who wishes he'd cash in his chips and come home. The film was based on a play co-written by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Paul Armstrong and legendary writer/publicist Wilson Mizner, who was something of a Greyhound himself in real life.
