Nolan comes through with a stellar performance as a man wanted for robbery who runs into trouble when Ross denounces him, sending him up the river. An average prison picture, with a fine performance also from Naish as a tough cell guard. William Holden made his movie debut here, having
signed as an extra straight from Pasadena Junior College. He would have a one-line speaking role in his next film, MILLION DOLLAR LEGS, before crashing into the heavens with GOLDEN BOY, his third movie.
