Storyline

In the second film of Monogram's Joe Palooka series, Joe is 'used', by two state senators scheming to obtain oil-rich lands, in a publicity campaign to get the land transferred to the state, supposedly for a park. When Joe learns that he has been used as a dupe he becomes disillusioned, and leaves the prize=fighting profession. But, his manager, sparring partners and fiancée manage to expose the land-grab scheme, clear Joe's name, and discredit the crooked politicians. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
