Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Formerly known as Allied Pictures, M. J. Hoffman's Liberty Pictures turned out quite a few potentially interesting programmers in its brief two-year existence. The Cheaters stars a pre-Hopalong Cassidy William Boyd as Steve Morris, a habitual jailbird who vows to go straight. This may prove difficult when Steve falls in love with another ex-con named Kay Murray (June Collyer). Though innocent of the crime for which she was jailed, Kay intends to prove to the world that she's as bad as everyone says she is, and to that end sets about to coerce wealthy K. C. Kelly (William Collier Sr.) into marriage. With a bigger budget and better writing, The Cheaters might have been a truly memorable effort; as it stands, it's not bad, but not terribly good either.
