There Ain't No Justice turned out to be the "breakthrough" picture for youthful British actor Jimmy Hanley. The star plays a garage mechanic who has an inborn talent for boxing. Needing a lot of money in a hurry, he falls in with a crooked fight promoter (Edward Chapman), who advertises Hanley as the next champ with a series of fixed bouts. By the time he realizes he's being set up as the patsy for a gambling ring, our hero has figure out a way to flummox the crooks and arrange a financial windfall for his long-neglected father (Edward Rigby). Based on a novel by James Curtis, There Ain't No Justice was a fixture of American "Late Late Shows" in the early 1950s.
