Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Directed by action specialist Duke Worne and starring Worne's wife Virginia Brown Faire, this minor murder mystery featured newcomer Dean Jagger as a young man framed for the murder of his late father's enemy (Broderick O'Farrell). Convicted of the killing, Jagger is saved in the nick of time by the murdered man's daughter (Faire), who had been forced into marrying the real culprit (Wheeler Oakman). Produced by Poverty Row entrepreneurs Trem Carr and W. Ray Johnston, Handcuffed was only the second film for Jagger, a former stage juvenile and radio performer whose premature baldness became his trademark. Jagger would go on to win a deserved Academy Award as the retired major in Twelve O'Clock High (1949).
