| Why would ANY woman what THAT man?!
When the film begins, Flash Norris (Ray Walker) ends up getting in a couple fights and punches people. While the folks seem like they deserve it, you soon realize that Flash is ALWAYS punching someone and he's a menace. Oddly, when he meets Lila (Kathryn Crawford), she falls for him. I say oddly because quite frankly, Flash is a real jerk. But she plans on remaking him--by getting him a job in her father's bank and civilizing him. But little does Flash know that one of his bosses is NOT a particularly nice guy...and sets him up to be accused of embezzlement.

There is one HUGE problem with this film....you are bound to hate the main character. Flash is an angry, slap-happy guy whose first reaction to nearly EVERYTHING and EVERYONE is to start hitting people....hardly the stuff of heroes! Plus believing that Lila or ANYONE would fall for Flash seems ridiculous! Add to that some, at best, mediocre acting by this leads and you've got a film that isn't especially memorable.

By the way, Flash's partner is played by George Hayes...later known as 'Gabby' Hayes and sporting a beard. He played in a lot of B-movies before moving on to westerns.
