Tremendous little thriller

What a good surprise to watch this little film, directed by the prolific Phil Rosen, who did not have the habit to give us so good pieces of work. I guess it's a Pictures Releasing Corporation - also known as Poverty Row Corporation...Rosen made many movies for this company.

I first thought of a Edgard Wallace Mystery series topic. I almost saw all of them. See for yourself. Two men meet gain after many years. The two know each other because they were in jail, in UK, and one of them escaped before beginning a new life in the USA, and as a wealthy man. The other one, his former cellmate, of course, as you can guess, decides to blackmail him, to reveal his actual identity, what he did years ago...

You can here also guess the following.

The blackmailer has a girl friend, who has herself another lover, a younger one.

When the blackmailer is "killed" by the ex con - and escapist - the police suspects the young woman's younger lover. Follow me?

And that's just the beginning of the story. Expect some more twists in this exciting little feature.

You rebound from a corner to the other...

Yes, Phil Rosen did not use to give us such good material.
