| Solid Script And Performances Make A Good Poverty Row Drama
Reporter Roger Pryor goes to jail for refusing to reveal his sources and gets along pretty well with the cons. Meanwhile, Senator Wallis Clark his ally and father of of his girlfriend, Muriel Evans, is shot. Miss Evans and the maid, Ann Doran, go after the shooters and disappear.

Mr. Pryor goes a very strong performance in this Poverty Row drama. A script that is pretty good helps, as does a wealth of good actors. Miss Doran's role is built up at the beginning with a subplot about her running away from home; that goes nowhere. I personally found it amusing to watch, because both ladies served as Charley Chase's leading ladies for two stretches of the great short-form comic's series: Miss Evan in 1933, and Miss Doran in his Columbia shorts from 1938-1940.

Ann Doran was one of those actresses you've seen in hundreds of appearances, giving good performances, in over 200 features, hundreds of television episodes and dozens of short subjects. Her feature career ran from 1922, when she played a page in the Fairbanks ROBIN HOOD, through 1986, when she appeared in the Goldie Hawn vehicle, WILDCATS. She gave performances for King Vidor, Nicholas Ray, Alfred Hitchcock.... She died in 2000, aged 89.
