A newspaperman out to get the goods on a crooked politician winds up in jail, framed for a killing he didn't commit. He and another prisoner attempt an escape, but although the newspaperman gets away, his colleague is caught and returned to jail. Years later, the convict gets out of prison and winds up in the same town where his former cell-mate is now a respected citizen, and attempts to blackmail him. Written by
Did You Know?
(at around 1 min) Two police officers spot the stolen car. When they turn around, the interior of the police car is reversed. Their badges switch to the right side, and the steering wheel and driver are now on the right - in other words the film is reversed. In the other views of the police car's interior the view is correct, with the steering wheel and badges on the left. See more
