| Graceful, Socially Concerned Quickie
This earnest little quickie has the usual opening sequence in a nightclub and a climax set at an airfield to end the film with a wallop, and in between contrives to take a sober look at the problems faced by a young Onslow Stevens as an ex-con out on parole without references. It's sufficiently compelling to have you wondering how on earth its increasingly involved plot can possibly be resolved happily, and manages a conclusion that is contrived but satisfying. Released just days after the introduction of the new Production Code at the beginning of July 1934, it still retains the cheerful amorality and social conscience of that lost era, with the profession of the faded but still gorgeous Lila Lee being immediately obvious.
