Produced by Poverty Row company William Steiner Productions, this minor action melodrama starred one Charles Hutchison, a former stage leading man who had made quite an impression as an athletic star of serials. Hutchison later signed with William Steiner and appeared in a series of very low-budget action thriller geared to the youth trade. Here, he is Billy Fisk, an enterprising youth who rescues lovely Mary beth Milford from a compromising situation by claiming to be her husband. The girl is in trouble with a gang of burglars out to steal her family bonds. Billy, of course, captures the gang after an exciting chase to the waterfront and proposes to make Mary Beth his wife for real.
