This is a pretty good PRC cheapie about how Marjorie Reynolds is about to marry her boss, a lawyer about to become an Assistant District Attorney, when her old boyfriend shows up after four years in prison, ready to collect her and the loot from the job he went to prison for, a job done with Marjorie's brother.

It's a spiffy screenplay and the actors are all good, but the piece is directed without much in the way of flair. The dp, little-known Arthur Martinell, had his best-known work in the 1920s, particularly the comedy ELLA CINDERS. But while he does his best with a set of classical compositions and camera moves and some moderately interesting use of the cheap PRC style of lighting, old-time director Willam Nigh never does much to make this more than adequate.
