Melodrama: Bruce Armstrong, the weak-willed son of a wealthy family, gambles with Tom Canfield and writes bad checks to cover his losses. To save himself from jail, Bruce agrees to help Canfield in his smuggling operations. During a fight over jewels, Big Jim Snead kills Canfield and attacks Bruce, who kills Snead in self-defense. The only witness to the shooting seems to be Jimmy Armstrong, Bruce's little brother, whom he has crippled in a drunken fit. Rather than subject the child to the rigors of a murder trial, Bruce confesses to Snead's murder. Dude Talbot, another of Canfield's gang, who also witnessed the killing, puts his own freedom in jeopardy and returns to testify at Bruce's trial, demonstrating by his testimony that Bruce killed Snead in self-defense. Bruce is pardoned and marries Marilyn Merrill, a beautiful dancer who stood by him through thick and thin. (From "The American Film Institute Catalog of Feature Films")
