In this little-seen classic gangster film, George Bancroft is a bailbondsman who jilts his nightclub-owner girl friend, Judith Anderson, for thrill-seeking rich girl Frances Dee. Dee deserts Bancroft for an impetuous bank robber, Chick Chandler, setting him up with stolen bonds that the
police recover in a raid. Then a mobster chieftain decides to kill Bancroft with an exploding eight ball during his daily pool game. Just as Bancroft is about to sink the ball, Anderson warns him. Dee sees the two reconciled and turns away, setting out to meet a man she hopes will molest her. This
fine underworld film was lost for nearly 40 years.
