When gang leader Joe Colson (Noel Madison) is released from prison, the Consolidated Life Insurance Company fears that he will be murdered before his policy expires in ninety days, and assigns private detective Mike Henderson (Jack Holt) to protect him. Henderson follows him aboard a plane bound for the coast and, in mid-air, the plane is taken over by three gangsters who land it near a secluded hunting lodge. Frankie Toller (Stanley Fields), racketeer, then takes over and tells the passenger they will be held prisoners until Colson reveals where his money has been hidden. Written by

Just a rare film, and directed by an authentic grade Z film maker: Lewis D Collins, who also co directed some serials for Universal or Columbia Pictures, with Ray Taylor. I watched this feature from a fairly good copy, probably bootlegged - 16mm print. Not boring but predictable and forgettable among the thousands, if not millions, of others made during the thirties and forties. Talks more than action, as you can guess, but watchable. Collins made mostly westerns and adventure yarns, not crime flicks.
Enjoy this one although. Not a masterpiece, far from that, but Worth for gem diggers, as I always say.
