This Columbia potboiler top-bills Charles Delaney and Olive Borden, two of the prettiest people in the movies. Delaney plays a naïve young bucko who gets mixed up with some gangster types then can't escape their influence. He knows he shouldn't be participating in crime, but he needs a quick source of income so as to support his grey-haired mother. At the urging of heroine Borden, Delaney turns his back on his outlaw chums and goes to the police, which action nearly costs him the use of his life. The film's main attraction was the sight of leading lady Olive Borden in her customary flimsy undergarments (Too bad the film no longer exists!)
