Just because Police Call was cheaply made doesn't mean it isn't fun to watch. Nick Stuart stars as Danny, a champion boxer who hopes to make enough money to support his lovin' ma and his kid sister. This accomplished, Danny begins working towards saving for his college education. These plans are scotched by a racketeer known as "The Chief" (Warner Richmond), who insists that Danny accept a job as a mob bodyguard. When one of the Chief's minions tries to have his way with Danny's sister, our hero knocks the crumb down a flight of stairs. Certain that he's killed the man, Danny runs off to Guatemala -- where the film suddenly and unexpectedly becomes a jungle melodrama, thereby justifying its re-issue title Broadway to the Jungles!
