Synopsis

Bobby Doyle is framed for murder and sent up the river for 20 years. He escapes with the help of hophead Johnny and remains in hiding in Johnny's attic. Wilkes, the gangster responsible for framing Bobby, wants to put him permanently out of the way and makes a play for Bobby's girl, Beebe, in an effort to flush Bobby out of hiding. Bobby confronts Wilkes, and Biff Myers, a hardboiled detective, kills Wilkes to save Bobby's life. A note in Wilkes's possession clears Bobby of the charge of murder, freeing him to find happiness with Beebe.
