Wrong Road, Wrong Movie
The Wrong Road is an outlandish film which lacks a shred of realism. The leads are attractive and do their best - Helen Mack is appealing and Richard Cromwell does his stalwart best (even though those of us who saw "Lives of a Bengal Lancer" remember him as the jerk who got Gary Cooper killed). And, playing against type, Lionel Atwill's character is cheerful and avuncular, which is a jolt.

But the plot itself is chock-full of holes and non-sequiturs and takes turns that rail against logic. Try as you might to give it a chance it defies you to suspend your disbelief. For instance, they get sent away to ADJOINING PRISONS and meet each other? After a while, another question arises; did they hire 10 year old screenwriters in Hollywood during the 30's?
