OVERVIEW

powered by AFI

Brief Synopsis

The plot is sparked by the misbehavior of heroine Myrtle (Anita Page), who enjoys rubbing shoulders with gangsters like Skeeter (Wheeler Oakman). When she learns too much about Skeeter's set-up, Myrtle is put on the spot by the mob. Crusty veteran police officer Dan (Lon Chaney) takes it upon himself to put Myrtle in "protective custody" in his own apartment. Old Dan falls in love with the girl, but at fadeout time he willingly gives up to likeable reformed gangster Marty (Carroll Nye).
