Description by

Deep in the swamplands of Indiana, pretty Laurie slaves away for her heartless Aunt Nora, who tortures her orphaned niece. The bright and optimistic girl falls in love with aspiring lawyer Wayne. Her aunt puts an end to the romance by blackmailing the heartbroken Laurie into marrying Corson, the richest and most uncouth man in the county. Just before the ceremony, Corson is shot, and the girl's innocent friend, Chris, is arrested for the murder. Wayne's first case will be a grave challenge, as he attempts to save Chris from the gallows.

Beautiful Jean Parker appeared in 70 films between 1932 and 1965 including The Flying Deuces (1939) with Laurel and Hardy and Frank Capra's Lady For A Day (1933), but is best remembered for her role as Beth in the original production of Little Women (1933). Beginning in the silent era, William Nigh directed some 120 films, most notably Mr. Wong, Detective (1938), Black Dragons (1942) and Lady from Chunking (1942).
