| Got any weed?
Wow.......that phrase has changed its meaning. William Powell (Jim) gets arrested for the murder of some complete stranger who he starts fighting with in order to protect Natalie Moorhead (Ethel). She, however, gives him no respect and just disappears leaving Powell to receive a life sentence. He escapes from jail and pursues Moorhead. He must find her to prove his innocence.

It's a good cast although Marion Schilling's (Edith) insipid love interest doesn't merit top female billing. The story develops at a good pace and Powell is a good leading man to take you along on his journey. He has a great voice. I did have to laugh out loud when cellmate Paul Hurst (Pete) asks him if he's got any weed.
