Movie Info

New York Police Commissioner Mulroney opens Penal Code with a stern warning for parents about keeping the children off the streets and out of gangs. The rest of the film provides a grim example of what could happen if they do not heed him as it tells the tale of a young man's descent into criminalhood and eventually jail. After serving his time, he tries to reform, but finds his bad-reputation clinging to him tartar to a tooth. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
