A fine crime film, directed by horror king William Castle, starring Barry as an enterprising oil company employee who devises a way to siphon off oil and gasoline from big companies and then sell it on his own. He stupidly goes to the mob with his discovery and comes under the thumb of
gang chieftain Zaremba and his buddy Arnold. Other small-time hoodlums join the bandwagon and soon Barry is in up to his neck. Eventually he fights off his oppressors, but ends up going to the hoosegow when his waitress girl friend, Hale, finks on him.
