This has been done before
5 July 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The plot has been done before. Hard boiled gangster on the lam hides out at a farm and falls for the local nice/innocent girl next door.

Robert Sterling ( a poor man's Robert Taylor) plays Lucky the hood . He does a poor imitation of Robert Montgomery playing the part with a lot of Montgomery's mannerisms from "The Earl of Chicago".

Marsha Hunt plays the farm girl who really falls for him.

The plot has been done before , the very best of which is "The Life Of Jimmy Dolan" with Douglas Fairbanks Jr.
