There's a lot of incident in this short programmer as Elissa Landi shoots a cop, gets sent to prison where she gives birth and has her daughter adopted while she isn't looking. Up shows Australian Victor McLaglen to get her out, and she kidnaps her daughter.

Given the large number of incidents and a running time under an hour, there isn't much time to ornament anything usefully except through a lot of moving shots, which director Allan Dwan seems to delight in. However, everything gets lost in the details and while Miss Landi and a troupe of troupers do their best, there isn't much to the movie until Una Merkel shows up, babbling about life in Alabama about the three-quarters mark. She's ditzy and endearing and without her this movie would be pretty much a dog.
