Time Out says

The year is 1860, the great sin is gambling, and the sinner (Peck) is a young novelist, 'Fyodor', if you will. Isherwood had a hand in the script, which unceremoniously culls episodes and characters from Dostoevsky's youth, Crime and Punishment, and The Gambler. Unfortunately, this prestigious MGM production is heavy-going and overdone. Moorehead plays a bleary pawnbroker; Barrymore, Morgan and Huston are roulette fiends; Gardner is the love interest. They're all out of luck.
