The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo (1935)

This feathery-light tale has Colman as a Russian aristocrat turned taxi-driver who wins millions of francs at a gambling casino and then proceeds to publicly deprecate his luck and warn others to stay away from the establishment.

The Casino understandably finds this harmful to business and hires Joan Bennett and Colin Clive to lure Colman back to the baccarat tables.

The scheme temporarily backfires when Bennett falls for her victim, and he for her - but is imminently successful as Colman returns to the casino and loses everything - everything but a dutifully reformed Ms. Bennett.
