All expense was spared in bringing this sleazy "exposé" to the screen. It's all about Mrs. Miller (Martha Chapin), the virtuous wife of kindly Dr. Miller (Robert Frazer). Alas, our heroine is lured into the questionable gambling emporium run by the shady Lucky Wilder (Wheeler Oakman, who made something of a career of exploitation pictures). "Hooked" by the seductiveness of the gaming tables and slot machines, poor Mrs. Miller goes downhill in record time, eventually retreating into the shadows as a "fallen woman." Vice Racket should not be confused with the like-vintage Crusade Against Rackets, though they're cut from the same melodramatic cloth.
