Fugitive bank robber Joe Maybe steals the identity of a marshal and rides into a town whose judge asks Joe to act as town marshal but an old flame almost betrays his real identity forcing Joe to claim she's his wife.
A scrappy fighter from Jersey City named Tommy Shea -- "born in a dump, educated in an alley" -- catches the eye of wealthy businessman, Robert Mallinson, who allows him to train at his Long Island estate. Shea soon falls for Mallinson's daughter, Dorothy, but fears he doesn't have the money to support her in proper style. To get this money, Shea decides to work with crooked fight-promoter Harry Cram, even though this means dropping his honest manager, Dave Bernstein. As the big fight approaches, however, Shea begins to have second thoughts. Written by

Jesse Hibbs began his career as an assistant director from 1937 to 1953. Then he became cinema director during 1953 and 1958 and directed 11 movies , 6 with Audie Murphy : 3 westerns, 1 comedy, 1 war autobiography and this box drama that has already been done in other movies in a far better way. Because "World In My Corner" is really flat with no punchy rhythm, the worse for a box movie. Absolutely no inventive direction and cinematography, even during the fights. Forgettable.
