Ann Grey is wrongly convicted of murder. On her way to jail a car accident gives her the opportunity to escape. She is helped by young lawyer Tony Baxter. He hides her from the police, as well as his fiancée, with the help of his butler Peedles. Ann is also wanted by the mobsters who really committed the murder as they think she knows where $250,000 worth of bonds are hidden. When the mobsters find and abduct her, Tony enlists the help of the D.A. and the police to try to get her back. Written by

Maureen O'Sullivan was rarely lovelier than she is as Ann Gray, a convicted murderess who goes on the lam and ends up being helped by do-gooder attorney Joel McCrea. McCrea and O'Sullivan make a wonderful team, but Woman Wanted is an all around success, featuring an amusing and sharply written screenplay and terrific and imaginative photography by Charles Clarke. The film is also extremely well lit and features some truly awesome second unit work, most notably in an early scene involving an auto wreck that gains O'Sullivan her freedom. The leads are ably supported by oily Louis Calhern as bad guy Smiley Gordon and Robert Greig as Peedles, McCrea's extremely loyal manservant. Woman Wanted is terrific and well made fun.
