Even Ardent Spring Byington Fans Should Avoid This One!
26 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

An unbelievably tripe-laden novelette about a retired schoolteacher who reforms some gangsters and discovers her own son amongst their number.True, the last half of the film, with its robbery and trial scenes, picks up a bit, but if anyone's still watching then, I'll be very surprised. Most viewers will be sufficiently irritated by the picture's early scenes to turn it off or walk out. Miss Byington is embarrassingly hammy and the script repulsively corny.

Director Yarbrough brings nothing to the movie but a charmless Poverty Row aura of "B" grade efficiency. And would you believe it all ends up with the pastor of the little church around the corner inviting the gangster to kneel down and say a prayer for his mother!
