Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Destination Big House is a well directed Republic Programmer starring Dorothy Patrick as a vacationing schoolteacher. Gangster Richard Benedict bursts into Dorothy's mountain cabin, where he dies in a shootout with the Law. As he breathes his last, Benedict wills $80,000 to Dorothy, but neglects to tell her where the loot is hidden. Coerced by the police to suggest that she knows where the money is, Dorothy helps to ferret out the rest of Benedict's gang. When the money is recovered, Dorothy donates all of it to a polio clinic maintained by the film's hero, Robert Rockwell.
