Escaping from a Canadian prison farm, master thief Gerard Dennis (David Brian) makes his way to Buffalo with Peggy Arthur (Perdita Chandler), who supplies him with money needed for forged papers. Dennis, Peggy and a crooked bartender in a Buffalo hotel pull a robbery in which Dennis is almost caught, but he escapes to find his accomplices have deserted him. Later, confronting them, he is badly beaten and is taken to a hospital where he meets nurse Martha Rollins (Marjorie Reynolds), who falls in love with him. They go to New Rochelle where he is wounded attempting another robbery. Martha performs the necessary surgery, believing that he will give up his life of crime. When she finds him in New York with another girl, Martha gives the police his picture and hideout location, but he escapes the police trap. He flees to Los Angeles where he meets wealthy divorcee Mrs. Arthur Vinson (Jacqueline De Wit), whose confidence he wins in order to systematically rob her society friends' jewels.Written by

When Gerry Dennis (David Brian) escapes from prison, everyone is hot on his trail. He gets money from his current girl, calls up an old girlfriend to pull more jobs, and even hooks up with a nurse when he gets injured. He must be a smooth operator. but he doesn't seem to learn his lesson, when a couple of con jobs go bad. Co-stars Marjorie Reynolds and John Archer. Story by Borden Chase, who had actually been a driver for the mob, probably giving him many fine story ideas. Directed by Peter Godfrey, a former bigshot in stage production before working in hollywood. Godfrey worked in some pretty big films, both as actor and later as director. the closing credits state that the mayor of New Rochelle actually played himself! This one is pretty plain and simple, no real surprises. as films and television always tells us, There is NO perfect crime !
