Storyline

A public stenographer, taking private dictation, sees a gangster shot in his room and she is taken along by the killers. The gang-chief falls for her, and she plays along to lull his suspicions, and eventually makes an escape. She takes a night-bus back to Los Angeles in order to give testimony that will clear her girl-friend who has been falsely accused of the killing. But the gang pursues her and she has to take over driving the bus when the driver is shot. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Trivia

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.
