In California, Bobo and his mooching 'pal' Tiny are doing odd jobs and getting drunk and they hide a secret about the unsolved murder of sailor Pop Kelly but suicidal waitress Anna, saved by Bobo, unravels the mystery.
Archie Mayo replaced Fritz Lang as director.
Pop was an awful pest, especially when he was drunk, but to choke an old guy like that, gee whiz.
Takeo: Yep, that's the way he done it, choked him to death. Just got him by the throat and hung on until it was all over.
