Robert Wilcox stars in Man in Blue as Frankie, a gangster's son. Frankie has been raised since childhood by Officer Martin Dunne (Edward Ellis), the cop who killed his father. About to join the force himself, Frankie is enticed into a life of crime by his con-artist uncle Willie Loomis (Richard Carle). After paying his debt to society in prison, our hero is redeemed by the love of heroine June Hanson (Nan Grey). Billy Burrud, a busy if not familiar juvenile actor, does a nice turn as the younger Frankie. Fairly conventional for the most part, Man in Blue is elevated by a powerhouse finale.
