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.

This message in for Sharon Pennock. I also have been searching for this movie for the past few years. Ideally i wanted to get it for my father for his 80th birthday, however, i didn't have much luck! My father told me about this film years ago and said it was one of the best film he has ever seen and such a tearjerker. I, like my father love all the old classics. It's my Dads 82nd birthday this year and i would just love to get the ideal present for him. Can you tell me where exactly you tracked down your copy of the film. I would greatly appreciated if you or anyone else who is reading this comment could assist me in my search. I'm living in Dublin, Ireland. And now after reading all the comments about the film i'm even more determined to get it. Thanks guys!!
