Storyline

Albert Woodruff is rejected by pretty Ruth Allen in favor of his friend, Justin Victor. Albert gets his revenge by faking his own death--by finding a man who looks just like him and killing him--then making it look like Justin murdered him. Justin is arrested, tried and convicted for Woodruff's "murder". Years later, however, after he's released from prison, he comes across Woodruff, who is very much alive. Complications ensue.
