Description by

A tough-talking beauty gets mixed up in a bank robbery and lands in prison. Before she is jailed, she steals the loot from her partners-in-crime and hides it. While in jail, she is befriended by an influential newspaper man, Kenneth Phillips. The lady gangster attempts to earn her release by turning over the money, but a series of double-crossings by her former henchmen stand in the way. Faye Emerson stars in this Warner Brothers' noir classic, with a supporting cast that includes a young Jackie Gleason as a mob strongman. Veteran director Robert Florey is billed under his pseudonym Florian Roberts.

Product Description:

Once she escapes from prison she tries her best to do good by rescuing a man from being killed by the mob. Jakie Gleason makes one of his first appearances in film as a henchman in this picture.

Good for its kind Movie Lover: from Middle Village, NY US -- November, 20, 2009

Faye Emerson gets herself involved with some shady charcters, helps rob a bank, is caught, and sent to jail. She gets out. Her boyfrinds gets shot. He's OK. They liev happliy ever after. The fun part of the film is seeing Jackie Gleason - playing a heavy before he was one (pun intended).
