A desperate young woman is caught taking part in a department store extortion racket and sent to jail. When she's let out on parole, she schemes to ruin the life of the man who wouldn't give her a second chance, the man responsible for her time behind bars. Taking advantage of the man's inebriated state, the woman stages a phony marriage and, knowing of the man's estranged wife, blackmails him with bigamy charges. Forced to keep up appearances as the happily married couple until the woman's parole runs out, the man and the woman grow fonder of each other than either would dare to admit.Written by
Mae Clarke is in the title role of Parole Girl who while out on parole plots some revenge against store manager Ralph Bellamy who insisted on her arrest. I won't go into the racket as it was quite a pip. But as Mae and her accomplice who didn't get caught Hale Hamilton learned these department do pool intelligence.
After a short stint in prison cut short by her heroic action during a prison fire Clarke is put on parole and she plans some revenge against Bellamy. Using his taste for booze she gets him drunk and marries him. Now there's vengeance for you.
And then the film takes an abrupt and sappy turn as Clarke and Bellamy start falling for each other. I mean, Ralph Bellamy? C'mon.
Giving good performances are Hamilton whose a devil may care con man and really doesn't care about anything and Marie Prevost as Clarke's prison running girl buddy.
But the premise to the whole film is bizarre.
