Walsh is wrongly accused of murder, arrested, and thrown in the pokey. It's up to G-man Nugent to prove Walsh's innocence, which he does, of course. This routine programmer has a few interesting twists, but isn't all that different from any one of hundreds of B films like it. Nugent
doesn't have the looks for a G-man hero but is passable in the role, while Doyle is just pretty baggage. Walsh, brother of director Raoul Walsh, is probably the best of the lot; though something of a star in silent films, he spent the last part of his career in modest roles like his character
here. The direction is adequate and the production values standard.
