Description by OLDIES.com:

Jerry Harris serves seven years for a crime he didn't commit and leaves prison obsessed with a single thought - to murder Jim Blake, the gangster who framed him. Jerry finds himself at the Friendship Mission, run by the virtuous Brother Jacob. The trust of Brother Jacob and the love of Blake's former girlfriend Molly are healing influences that help Jerry shed his bitterness. But there are bumps on his road to redemption, like the ruthless owner of a neighboring flophouse and his efforts to destroy Brother Jacob's mission.

A Depression-era drama of breadline saints and sinners, Soul of the Slums is itself "redeemed" by its colorful assortment of players: popular silent movie leading man William Collier, Jr. as Jerry; beautiful Blanche Mehaffey (of Devil Monster infamy) as his girl; James Bradbury, Jr. (Mark of the Vampire) in the comic role of a mute pickpocket; and perennial Laurel & Hardy nemesis Walter Long as the rival flophouse owner who gets the psalm-singing Friendship Mission residents a step closer to Heaven - by blowing the building sky-high!

Product Description:

A dedicated priest sets up a mission in the slums of a great metropolitan city, hoping to clean up the community by cleansing the souls of its denizens. The plot concentrates on one of these unfortunates, a falsely accused convict played by William Collier Jr. Released from jail, Collier returns to his tenement neighborhood, seeking revenge on the man who framed him. But upon meeting mission worker Blanche Mehaffey, the ex-girlfriend of his would-be victim, Collier vows to change his ways. He also sees to it that his two ex-cellmates (Murray Smith and James Bradbury Jr., a sort of poor man's Laurel and Hardy) will likewise follow the straight and narrow.
