Shirley Grey plays The Girl Who Came Back in this Chesterfield Pictures "special". Grey is cast as Gilda, a former gun moll who turns her back on her crooked past and heads west to start life anew. Under an assumed name, she gets a job as a bank teller, only to be reunited with her former gangland cohorts (Noel Madison and Matthew Betz) during a bank robbery. The crooks kidnap Gilda's sweetheart Rhodes (Sidney Blackmer), forcing her to confess her past sins to the police in order to expedite Rhodes' rescue. The film concludes with a lively outdoor chase, a rarity in the usually soundstage-bound Chesterfield product.
