Description by OLDIES.com:
Dorothy Day loves to live beyond the family's income, and doting husband John doesn't have the heart to deny her. But when John is arrested for embezzling funds from his company, both Mr. and Mrs. are plunged into a downward spiral that means imprisonment for him and a tragic love affair for her.
Richard Dix and Madge Evans portray the Days in this 1933 melodrama touted by publicity as "The True Story of Half a Million Lonely Women!" Lonely men, too, what with the film's depiction of John's stretch in the local iron-bar motel. Raymond Hatton portrays John's jailbird pal, one of Hatton's 400+ career roles.
In this brutal prison drama a hen-pecked husband is sentenced to prison after getting caught with his hand in the company till. He is sent to a high-rise facility in LA. It seems the fellow was only following the instructions of his domineering, constantly nagging wife who, as soon as he is put away, takes up with a more successful businessman. This causes her new lover's ex-lover to get insanely jealous and kill the conniving wife. The businessman decides to take the blame for the death and he is sent to the same jail as the dead woman's husband. One of the two meets a violent end.
