A young married couple whose plans for their life together haven't turned out as expected decide to rob the bank where the husband works of $100,000, then hide the money in a safe place and return for it after they serve out their sentences. All goes according to plan until they get out of prison, when they find that they're being trailed by an insurance investigator and the husband's old cellmate, who has decided that he wants a cut of the money.

The Wrong Road is an outlandish film which lacks a shred of realism. The leads are attractive and do their best - Helen Mack is appealing and Richard Cromwell does his stalwart best (even though those of us who saw "Lives of a Bengal Lancer" remember him as the jerk who got Gary Cooper killed). And, playing against type, Lionel Atwill's character is cheerful and avuncular, which is a jolt.
But the plot itself is chock-full of holes and non-sequiturs and takes turns that rail against logic. Try as you might to give it a chance it defies you to suspend your disbelief. For instance, they get sent away to ADJOINING PRISONS and meet each other? After a while, another question arises; did they hire 10 year old screenwriters in Hollywood during the 30's?
