Robert Webster aka Bat Williams was born into a wealthy upscale family. Robert becomes a hardened criminal and ruthless killer serving time then getting paroled. He sends postcards to his family from prison lying about where he has been. Robert's father is head of the parole board and initially doesn't want to parole him as Robert's name is "Bat Wiliams" in jail. Once the father sees who Bat is, Robert blackmails his father to parole him or else he will ruin the family name.
Beautiful Betty Grable as Robert's sister is a joy to watch. Bruce Cabot is convincing as the cold killer. A crafty James Gleason is the detective who is on to Robert's tactics. Light but fast moving movie.
