“A still-powerful prison drama that has the only teaming of Tracy and Davis.”
– Leonard Maltin
(Rowland Brown) Bailbondsman George Bancroft dallies with thrill-seeking heiress Frances Dee, despite longtime mistress Dame-to-be Judith Anderson (Rebecca), but then finds himself holding the bag after a half-mill bank robbery. Approx. 65 min. 35mm.
“Rowland Brown directed only three movies, but if this 1933 crime melodrama is any indication, he had a masterful sense of story and a surprisingly jaundiced wit.”
– J.R. Jones, Chicago Reader
