Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
Famous filmmaker Jacques Tourneur (known for his compelling film noir and scary horror movies) makes his directorial debut in this crime drama that centers on a gang's getaway driver who is captured and imprisoned. There he undergoes rehabilitation and decides to go straight. The head gangster's moll also opts for reform while her boyfriend decides to stay a crook. The good couple ends up earning an early parole; they make the most of their second chance and prove that prison rehabilitation works. The film is noted for its realism.
