Carl Brisson’s “One-Round Jack” takes on all comers at the fair, but when Ian Hunter tries his luck, they have to bring out the pristine marker for Round 2. A serpentine bracelet goes back and forth among the ensuing love triangle, with a glass of champagne losing its bubbles a visual correlative for bad news. An uncredited Alma Reville handled continuity.
