A government agent goes under cover in prison to gain confidence with a wanted criminal and get information regarding his gang. The two make an eacape and the agent pretends to be a loyal confidant aiding the criminal in recuperating after he is shot in the escape. In the midst of this, the agent meets the criminal's sister, who is looking to just visit her brother, viewing him through rose colored glasses as just a small time crook she can reform and not the dangerous murderer he is in reality. The agent falls for the sister and this adds additional difficulty to his mission. Written by
Wow! A preternaturally cute,just past teenage, Donna Reed in her first movie, emoting with all she had. Dan Daily-of all people-playing the heavy. A real menace. In an uncredited role, the immortal Veda Ann Borg.
The story is old. It had been done before and even more afterward, but who cares. It's a b-movie, but with MGM high production values. A dance hall scene seems to have hundreds of extras. So suspend critical judgment (and even basic intelligence) and sit back and have fun.
My favorite scene is when Dan Daily, hiding out and in disguise so that he would not be recognized, approaches Veda Ann Borg in a dance hall and asks to dance with her. What better way to deflect any attention to yourself than to dance with the showiest blond in Hollywood history?
