Frank Powell, an honest stock salesman, attempts to verify the authenticity of his merchandise and his employer commits suicide. Dishonest partners in the company employ gangsters to make the man's death look like murder, in order to cast suspicion on Frank and cover up their own crooked deals. He is convicted and sent to prison. He escapes by chance when other gangsters effect the escape of a gang-member to whom Frank happens to be handcuffed at the time. Free, he sets out, aided by his brother, Curtis, a former missionary, to establish his innocence.Written by

Another contributor commented that once this gets going it's fun and he's right. All kinds of stuff is going on here, crime, love, setups, religion, fatalism and more with a little comedy thrown in. One thing's for sure: it's not dull. It starts out with the basic premise that an honest guy discovers his partners are crooked and tries to set things straight but ends up being framed. And then it keeps adding in more and more tangents that frankly, make it a fun romp. In the hands of a better crew and a little more focus this could actually have been really good. But anyway you look at it if you ever get a chance to watch it (and that's not easy) don't miss it.
