Former football star Dave " Whizz " Tyler is convicted of a robbery and spends three years in jail . Given parole he faces completing the remaining six years if he breaks his parole but vows that he's innocent of the crime and will do everything to prove it

Sort of a dumb premise. All American type spends 3 years in prison for robbery? Huh? If he's paroled after 3 years what was his sentence? like 12? Today he'd get released before trial.

It's really not a very good movie. Even for the time. It's sort of very heavy handed, rather talkie and boring. Also more no logical sense most of the time.

Everybody is a stereotype and the movie's attempt at humor falls flatter than a pancake too. Not a keeper
