Also known as Jack O' Hearts, this inspirational drama was based on Jack in the Pulpit, a play by Gordon Morris. Cullen Landis stars as Jack Farber, a young clergyman railroaded into prison for a crime he didn't commit. At first, Jack nearly succumbs to anger and resentment. As time passes, however, his faith sees him through his awful ordeal. Finally managing to clear his name, Jack emerges a better man from his experience. Though the film includes all the "important" entertainment elements, Jack of Hearts found its biggest audience on the church-basement and civic-group circuit.
