In this, one of his half-dozen potboilers for Poverty Row producer William Steiner, former serial ace Charles Hutchison played Bruce Pomroy, a young bank teller framed in a bond theft scheme actually conceived by supposedly respectable bank president Paul Gilmore (Crauford Kent). Bruce escapes from jail and joins the gang of thieves headed by John Creighton (Otto Lederer). During another robbery attempt, Bruce rescues his girl (Mary Beth Milford) from the villains and reveals himself to be a Department of Justice agent in disguise. Turned Up was written by Frederick Chapin, the father-in-law of director William Wellman. Chapin's son James directed, his second-to-last film before dying from pneumonia at the age of only 25.
