Edward Arnold has just gotten out of prison, broke, to find that his daughter has come home from Europe. He's no longer interested in the rackets, but he wants to send her to safety. Meanwhile, Phillip Holmes' mother is about to marry a younger man, who only wants her for her money. Together they concoct a scheme to kidnap him and hold him for ransom; that will distract his mother! Things grow complicated...

The Code was moving into enforcement, and this movie hews to it in a strict manner, including the death of the redeemed crook, that shows a paint-by-numbers attitude towards the matter. Nonetheless, the fine cast, which includes Mary Carlisle, Wini Shaw, Andy Devine, Jane Darwell and a singing Jay C. Flippen make this a handsome little programmer.
