Producer's Releasing Corporation had a reputation for turning out lackluster product with their movies. But this first PRC film was not all that bad. It starred Gordon Jones who before he became beefy and goofy did some lead roles and serious ones in B films. I Take This Oath tells the story of a young man who joins the police force to avenge the death of his father Robert Homans. Homans was trying to find the secret crime boss of his city when he was killed by a bomb.
Obviously he was getting too close and Jones picks up where his father left off. He also joins the police force taking the examination with his friend Craig Reynolds whom he entrusts his girl Joyce Compton to escort as she's a girl who likes to step out. Jones is on a mission and he will let nothing stand in his way.
I Take This Oath is an OK noir film and PRC at least started on an acceptable note. Too bad it didn't live up to expectations.
