Storyline

A power-broker ward-heeler, Bill Grimes, wields more power than the elected politicians and has no problem in getting matters-of-the-city handled in which ever way is best for his needs. But when he tries to fix his adored kid brother's place on the school football team, he meets his match in school-teacher Anne Barry. Jimmy, the brother, is not a scholar and the teacher rules he can't play until he gets his school grades up...and that's final. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

When a big shot has a teacher fired for preventing his younger brother from playing baseball because of low grades, she turns the tables on him with use of the press and her fellow teachers. Creating scandal for him, she also ignites a flame in him that quite surprises him.

Jack Holt plays the big shot bully who gets taken down a level with Mona Barrie as the teacher who won't take this lying down. In her last film, funny lady Winnie Lightner provides excellent support as Barrie's gal pal, a music teacher who becomes involved with Holt's chauffeur, Edward Brophy.

This is an interesting B feature commenting on how powerful citizens abuse their position by taking down the normal, decent citizens just because they can't get what they want out of them. Holt is a decent actor who managed to get leading roles in spite of being rather hard looking and always determined to step on everybody he encounters. While his live for his much younger brother is touching, it takes a whole lot to accept that he'd get a teacher fired over such an obvious flaw. Well intended but far from flawless, this ends up as a rare curio. Hatchet faced character actors Charles Lane and Clarence Wilson are excellent as the reporters covering the story.
