| A dangerous operation
A gang steal a load of money and the insurance company send an insurance investigator to the boarding house which is run by the chief suspect's girlfriend to find out what is going on. Gene Raymond (Dan) carries out the visit to Noreen Nash (Bonnie). As it happens, this gang is extremely dumb and head for the most obvious place to hide. That's right, they go to the boarding house that is run by the chief suspect's girlfriend. This is obviously because the police would never think to go there! Surprisingly, they don't! It's up to the insurance investigator who is posing as a doctor to sort things out. Uh-oh, the gang leader Robert Bice (Frankie) is wounded and needs medical attention. Step forward Mr Raymond to operate. Will his cover be blown?

There is a story here but it drags and the film becomes boring. By the end, you are expecting a formulaic shoot-out with the involvement of Gene Evans (Joey) as the good-guy brother of Nash. Unfortunately, there are no surprises and the film is not fast-paced enough to keep the audience's attention.
