After young Robert Graham (Phillips Holmes) commits a murder while drunk and defending his girlfriend, he is prosecuted by ambitious Mark Brady (Walter Huston) and sentenced to 10 years. Six years later, Brady becomes the prison warden and offers the beleaguered Robert a job as his chauffeur.

  • Dec 28, 2010
    The best thing about this movie was Boris Karloff.This was the 1st time I've ever seen him in a non horror role & He was truly creepy.I love old prison flicks so I was hoping for a good movie but it was just OK.Without Boris Karloff, It would've totally sucked
