The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

Robert Lowery who did a few of those Pine-Thomas B films for Paramount stars in this one and he's played for a fool by Lola Lane and tricked into being the getaway driver in a bank robbery. A cop is killed and a bank employee who Lane was romancing to get some inside information on the bank is also killed.
When the cops catch up with Lowery he's in one big jackpot but manages to escape police custody rather cleverly I thought and he teams up with Barbara Britton who is the sister of the dead bank employee. They have to find the gang in order to prove their innocence.
Lowery is always a good hero in these films, he never quite made it to the A ranks as a star. One to watch out for is Elizabeth Risdon who plays a Ma Barker type who is the real mastermind.
As for the gang, fortunately Lola Lane uses jargon from her job which Lowery recognizes and is able to trace them. Good thing he recognized her slang or he and Britton would still be looking.
They Made Me A Killer is a nicely done action/noir type film.
