Description by OLDIES.com:

Roger Andrews, a struggling young attorney, apprehends one of the most dangerous gunmen in the country and becomes a national hero in the blink of an eye. His newfound celebrity status is a boon to his career in law when he is promoted to the job of Special Prosecutor in a case against a vicious crime syndicate. Roger's girlfriend Ann, a feisty newspaper reporter, fears for his safety knowing the criminal organization's history of violence and murder. What they don't realize is that Roger's appointment was masterminded by a corrupt District Attorney who's hoping to use the naive lawyer to ensure the release of one of the gang's most dangerous criminals. But Roger, and those who break the law, soon discover one should never underestimate the power and determination of a genuine hero.

Excitement and romance run wild in this intriguing story from the era's premier budget studio. Monogram Pictures. Borrowed Hero was also a great vehicle for the acting talents of Florence Rice, an under-rated actress of the period. The Cleveland-born performer began her ten year film career with MGM, often co-starring with actor Robert Young (The Longest Night, Sworn Enemy) and she gained further attention for her appearance in the Marx Brothers' At The Circus. Her last picture, The Ghost And The Guest, marked the actress's departure from film to work on radio and TV. Borrowed Hero was directed by Lewis D. Collins, who churned out a huge list of B-westerns, action dramas and adventures, including The Longhorn, Fargo, and his final picture Two Guns And A Badge.
