Even a law abiding family can spawn a criminal.
26 November 2000 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

The subject of much folk lore and legend in the beginnings of Oklahoma statehood. Al Jennings brings shame and disappointment to his family by becoming an angry bank robber. After serving his sentence, he tries to walk the straight and narrow; and by studying the law, gains respect and becomes a footnote in the history of Oklahoma.

Sporadic action and distorted story inspired by truth. Cast includes: Dan Duryea, Dick Foran, James Millican, Gale Storm and Raymond Greenleaf.
