Less than a week after the press preview of his second starring feature Man in Blue, Robert Wilcox was seen on-screen in his first starrer, Armored Car. Wilcox plays detective Larry Willis, who goes undercover as an armored-car guard. Larry deliberate messes up his job so that he'll be fired, thereby convincing a gang of hijackers that he's desperate enough to join them. Our hero works his way into the confidence of "intellectual" head crook Walinsky (Irving Pichel), much to the displeasure of the boss' distrustful henchman Petack (Cesar Romero). Things get hairy when the hoods threaten the life of heroine Ella (Judith Barrett), forcing Larry to blow his cover.
