Hoping to build up contract players Charles Quigley and Rita Hayworth into a viable screen team, Columbia Pictures rushed the actors from one "B" production to another. Convicted tells the story of a diligent detective named Burns (Quigley) who is forced to arrest Chick Wheeler (Edgar Edwards), brother of Burns' sweetheart Jerry Wheeler (Hayworth), for murder. The more he thinks about it, the more Burns is convinced that Chick is innocent. With Jerry's help, Burns tracks down the genuine miscreant in the nightclub where the heroine works. Supporting player Edgar Edwards also adapted the screenplay of Convicted from a story by suspense master Cornell Woolrich.
