Plot

Four years before, American gambler Jim Forster was broke. He borrowed £1 from Maxie, proprietor of Maxie's Barn, and had a very lucky gambling streak. He continued to rise and now owns posh illegal casinos, a nightclub and other enterprises in London. He aspires to find acceptance amongst the British upper class, taking daily lessons in correct behaviour from Miss Minter.

One night, casino employee Jacko Spina reluctantly accepts a cheque from Lord Peter Willens for gambling losses. The cheque bounces, but Jim orders Jacko not to do anything about it. Jacko roughs up Willens anyway to try to collect the money. Willens comes to see Jim and informs him he will be paid in a week; Jim tells him he had nothing to do with Willens' beating. Afterwards, Jim fires Jacko.

Dave Davies, Jim's longtime friend and bookkeeper, warns him the Colonnas are in town. They were big-time gangsters in the United States until they were deported. Now they run casinos in Rome and Paris. Arturo Colonna offers to buy Jim's operation and pay him 10% to run things. He turns them down.

Meanwhile, Jim breaks up with his girlfriend Pat, a professional dancer at his nightclub, whom he has tired of. Later, he spots Willens and his friends celebrating the 21st birthday of Lady Jane Greer at his nightclub. He comes over, but is openly mocked by Greer and most of the party. The sole exception is Lady Susan Willens, Lord Willens' sister. She dances with him, and he invites her to a boxing match. (This is witnessed by Pat. She later starts drinking heavily and saying nasty things about Jim.) Jim sees more of Susan. Susan initially consider Jim just a friend, until a jealous Pat confronts her.

After Jim turns down Colonna a second time, his nightclub and two of his casinos are wrecked, but he remains defiant.

Peter Willens asks Susan to try to persuade Jim to invest in a gold mine which promoter Richard Farning claims is in need of funds to exploit a newly found deposit. Over the strenuous objections of Dave, Jim sells out to the Colonnas and liquidates the rest of his assets. However, the gold mine is soon revealed to be a scam. Jim, who has avoided liquor because it unleashes his vicious temper, starts drinking heavily.

Meanwhile, Jacko tips off the police to the gambling establishments, then lies to Arturo Colonna and tells him Jim is responsible for the police raids. When Angelo Colonna and a reluctant Jacko go to Jim's home, he is not there, but Dave is; Angelo unintentionally kills him. When Jim finds out, he seeks revenge. Pat follows him to the Colonnas. A shootout ensues. Jim is shot in the arm, but gets away and ends up in the street. Pat runs him down with her car. Susan and Jim's butler arrive; it is unclear whether Jim is dead or alive, but they take him home.
