| King of the Warner B's in routine prison story...
DICK FORAN was an amiable Warner player during the '30s and '40s who spent most of his time as a singing cowboy or playing the romantic lead in a number of trifles as the studio's dependable B-budget star.

His real life experience as a band vocalist is used to good effect as a prisoner who gains some respect with a pleasant singing voice, despite an adversarial relationship with chaplain JOHN LITEL (another stock Warner player). Foran does a nice singing and acting job in this otherwise rather ordinary story about a man who has to prove his innocence after being wrongly convicted of murder, thanks to the underhanded work of DICK PURCELL. As the love interest, JUNE TRAVIS has little to do, nor does VEDA ANN BORG as Purcell's scorned girlfriend.

It's not hard to take and moves briskly at one hour and 12 minutes.
