Storyline

Following a long investigation, Police Detective-Lieutenant Anthony "Tony" Roberts becomes convinced that there is some powerful unknown-master-mind leader behind the gangs of crooks who are terrorizing the city, and it has something to do with paroled convicts. He sets up a scheme with his supervisor to have himself shamed by being demoted to a patrolman, and then caught in the act of receiving bribe-money from a racketeer. He is convicted and sent to prison, and the manner in which his parole is arranged leads him, dangerously, to the secret-head of the gang. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

The usual and forgettable stuff

Well, really nothing special about this little forgotten film. A gangster film, OK, but if you don't get it, I assure you that you can live without it. Paul Kelly plays here the usual good guy who tries to get the bad guys behind bars. Good atmosphere although, but it doesn't deserve to be searched for years long. I don't know the director. The thirties gave us some better stuff. Even grade B ones, like this movie. Again, if you can catch it, do it, but if not, I repeat, it doesn't matter. Believe me.

What can I say more about it?

I really don't know, guys, sorry. I almost forgot it, and I watched this feature only ten minutes ago.
