Trapped could well describe how former silent-movie queen Priscilla Dean must have felt when she was cast in this poverty-row quickie. Nick Stuart, the chauffeur for a gangster chieftain, falls in love with Nena Quartaro, the daughter of brassy nightclub entertainer Dean. Meanwhile, Dean herself is romanced by her "friendly enemy," police detective Tom Santschi. Somehow this all ends up with a bank robbery and a bloody gangland shootout. A lesser entry in the gangster cycle of the early 1930s, Trapped is some distance removed from such classics as Little Caesar and Scarface.
