Description by

A reckless playboy, framed for bank robbery and sentenced to a long prison stretch, lets bitterness warp his mind and he forgets the old axiom "You can't beat the law!"

Behind bars, young Johnny Gray becomes his own worst enemy: sharing a cell with Cain, the pen's toughest con, he agrees to Cain's plan to escape prison or die trying. The new warden's attempt at rehabilitation revives a bit of the old Johnny; and then proof of his innocence turns up unexpectedly and wins him a pardon. Johnny stays on at the penitentiary but now as a compassionate guard, unaware that the escape plan is still on - and that Cain is counting on his cooperation!

Poverty Row's greatest gangster Jack La Rue heads the cast as Cain in this Big House tale, partially shot on location behind the gray walls of California's San Quentin. With its car chase, brutal fights and the on-camera machine gunning of escaping inmates, the action is fast and furious.

Product Description:

A playboy imprisoned for a bank robbery he didn't commit gets involved with a convict who's determined to make a daring escape in this vintage crime thriller shot on location at San Quentin prison. Sentenced to a long stretch behind bars after being framed for a brazen bank heist, Johnny Gray finds himself sharing a cell with Cain - a man determined to win back his freedom even if it costs him his life. When Cain confides his escape plan to his new cell mate, Johnny agrees to participate. Meanwhile, new evidence clears Johnny of any wrongdoing, and he is granted a full pardon. But Johnny's experiences behind bars have left him a changed man, and he decides to become a guard at the penitentiary. Little does Johnny realize that Cain is still determined to break out at any cost, and he fully expects his old partner to follow through on his end of the plan.
