After getting paroled from prison, The Frisco Kid heads for a small Northwestern logging town, acting on a tip about a bank that would be a cinch to knock over. When he arrives and meets beautiful young Sissy Shannon, he has a change of heart and decides to go straight. A gang of ex-cons shows up to take a crack at the bank that The Kid once targeted. When the bank president is killed, the Frisco Kid is fingered as the culprit, and he has to run for his life from a frenzied lynch mob.
Veteran acrobat and stuntman Richard Talmadge is showcased in this thrilling action adventure. Already a legend from his death defying stuntwork in silent films, Talmadge went on to write, direct and star in movies that put his athletic talents to good use. Later in his career, Talmadge found steady work as a second-unit director, creating action sequences for such notable films as Beau Geste (1939), Prince Valiant (1954), The 300 Spartans (1962), How the West Was Won (1962), The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965) and Hawaii (1966).
In this vintage 1933 crime film, an ex-con infiltrates a small town to rob their bank but ends up having a change of heart when it's up to him to protect the local orphans from a greedy land swindler.
