In a hopeful effort to evade gangster Legs Caffey, chorus girl Letty Morris hops a bus in New York bound for Los Angeles--with Legs close on her heels. Along the way the bus picks up escaped convict Paul Porter, who quickly allies himself with Letty. With the police in hot pursuit and Legs monitoring his every move with Letty, Paul is running out of both time and ideas. Written by

Maybe not a great picture, but highly interesting.
Robert Montgomery, Nat Pendleton, and Madge Evans turn in remarkable performances. Please note the talents of Mr. Pendleton. He could do comedy and serious roles. Also, his background is very interesting (Olympic athelte). The trip through New Jersey and Pennsylvania at the time (1934) shows a sparsely populated countryside. At that time, the George Washington Bridge had only one level and the highways were mostly two lanes. Also, if you're familiar with the George Washington Bridge, the entrance on the New York side was vastly different from what it is today. It's almost like taking a trip aboard a time machine.
