Paul Kriza is a cashier of a bank in a small town, and the happy husband of Anna and the father of four children. He is sent to New York to deliver some securities for the bank. There, he is tagged as easy-pickings by a con-game gang and Mary Brown, gang accomplice, proves he is. Waking up in the morning he discovers he has been robbed of the securities and, when he confronts the gang, he is hit on the head and taken out to be left on a railroad track. He comes to, struggles with the henchman and the man is killed when a train comes roaring by. Paul escapes but his watch is found and he is reported as the dead man. But he can't go home again.

I, too, saw this movie as a child and cried at the ending. It is the greatest tear-jerker of all time. I think I know where you can find it. A book by Priscella Presley noted that Elvis liked the movie so much, he purchased the rights to it.
It is a shame that no one may ever see it again, and many have never even heard of it. Long ago, I tried to write Ms. Presley about this. But I did not really know how to contact her. I fully believe this movie would be successful if shown again, or perhaps remade. I am glad to hear that someone else knows of it. It is the most powerful movie I've ever seen from the standpoint of making the movie-watcher need a Kleenex.
Does anyone else who has seen it have a comment?
