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 saw the last hour of this film when I was about 10 years old,....which would have been about 1965,...the end is so sad. I cried and cried and I have searched for many years to get a copy of it. American Movie Classics does not even have it,.....but if anyone knows where to find it please let me know,....I never got to see the whole movie only the last part,.....so I would very much appreciate it! It's really sad to see some of the old classics like this disappear, I hope that someone somewhere has saved this wonderful movie. it seams like we are in an age where everyone wants what they want when they want it, which usually means right now! And the good old days when things were simple are a thing of the past, and many movies are disappearing from the Archives due to this hurry up got to have it now attitude. This movie teaches patience and self sacrifice. Good values that also seam to be a thing of the past, we need these old movies cause they were part of our heritage.
