Storyline

A desperate young woman is caught taking part in a department store extortion racket and sent to jail. When she's let out on parole, she schemes to ruin the life of the man who wouldn't give her a second chance, the man responsible for her time behind bars. Taking advantage of the man's inebriated state, the woman stages a phony marriage and, knowing of the man's estranged wife, blackmails him with bigamy charges. Forced to keep up appearances as the happily married couple until the woman's parole runs out, the man and the woman grow fonder of each other than either would dare to admit. Written by Jimmy L.

Good Movie That Could be Remade Again
17 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recorded this movie and watched it in the morning. It was well worth it, even though it was short and the plot is sometimes very contrived, but then again most movie plots are contrived. Mae Clark did a very good job playing a woman who is basically good but due to circumstances does not always follow the most moral path. I won't go into more but the movie was very entertaining. You can tell the movie is pre-code and that adds just enough of an edge to make it interesting.

Ralph Bellamy did a good job of playing the forced upon husband. He was quite entertaining. Mr. Taylor played by Ferdinand Gottschalk was an interesting character it reminded me of the old days when having a wife and kids increased your chance of promotion at the company. Those days are gone, but it does give you an insight into what life was pre-1960's.
