Ex-safecracker on parole Crawford lands a job as a janitor at a New York brownstone and saves tenant Bruce from a suicide attempt. Learning that she has a baby and is finding it difficult to cope, Crawford offers to help Bruce in caring for the tot. Although cop Foran refuses to believe
it, Crawford becomes as gentle as a lamb through his devotion to Bruce's baby. Engaging comedy that's stuffed with Runyon's street-wise, sharp-tongued gamblers, hoods, and bootleggers, all, of course, with hearts as big as the Big Apple itself. Crawford is wonderful as the big, clumsy, dim-witted
ex-con who learns the value of love.
