This film proves the old adage "You can pick your friends and you can pick your nose, but you shouldn't pick friends who rob banks." Local bad girl Hilda convinces Connie to join her at a party and lends Connie a dress she "borrowed" from the cleaners where they both work. When the dress gets torn, the owner Jane and her boyfriend Neil notice and Connie gets blamed, fired, and prosecuted for it. Neil is the prosectuing attorney, but feels sorry for Connie, so he drops the charges and loans her the money to pay off the dress. Connie goes to the big city to escape the shame and get a job to pay off Neil. She meets Hilda there and gets mistakenly arrested, along with Hilda and Tony, for bank robbery. A kindly parole officer believes her story and helps get her paroled. Connie returns home, gets engaged to Neal and is doing well when Hilda returns once more and threatens to ruin her life by spilling Connie's secret shame.Written by

Hilda and Tony rob the bank with Hilda as the get-away driver. When Tony jumps into the back seat after the robbery, Connie is inadvertently caught-up in the confusion and is now a passenger in the front seat. The car is pursued by police and drives dangerously fast making many sharp turns. Scenes change from the interior of the car to exterior shots of the police pursuit; however, at some point both girls are now in the back seat and Hilda has the gun as she shoots at the police.

"Connie Heath" (Jane Bryan) is a nice young woman who works hard and just wants to to be treated fairly. Unfortunatley, she has a very strict father named "Roger Heath" (Sig Ruman) who disapproves of her friend "Hilda Engstrom" (Sheila Bromley) and forbids Connie to have anything to do with her. Now normally Connie would comply with whatever he father decrees however she chooses to disobey just once when Hilda invites her to a party one night and even offers to let her wear one of her dresses for the event. But what Hilda doesn't tell her is that she stole the dress from the tailor shop that she works at. And this is when her troubles begin. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was a decent grade-B film which didn't have much action but still managed to keep my attention for the most part. One thing I should also mention is that, even though the movie poster has Susan Hayward plastered on the front of it, she actually only had a relatively minor role (as "Gloria Adams") compared to that of Ronald Reagan (as "Niel Dillon") and the aforementioned Jane Bryan and Sheila Bromley. Be that as it may, while this was a rather short film (about 63 minutes) I suppose it was worth the time spent watching it and I have rated it accordingly. Average.
