Cast & Crew
In order to eliminate football player Dave Tyler from a crucial game, gamblers frame him for a bank robbery. After serving three years in prison, Dave is released on parole and sets out to find who framed him. He is hired as a chauffeur by Greg Warren, an investment broker who, unknown to Dave, is the man for whom he has been looking. Dave falls in love with Warren's sister Julie, who is also unaware that her brother is the covert head of a crooked gambling ring. Discovering that the six witnesses who testified against him have vanished, Dave is about to give up his search when Sniffy, an ex-convict, promises to give him the name of the man who framed him, on the condition that Dave act as his accomplice in a robbery. Dave reluctantly agrees, but when the alarm is sounded, he forces Sniffy to admit that Warren was the man responsible. To protect Julie, Dave withholds this information from her, and when she tells her brother of her love for Dave, Warren hurries to stop Russell, his henchman, from murdering him. In the ensuing gun fight between the police officer who has arrested Dave and Russell, Warren is seriously injured. Dave remains silent about Warren's guilt because of his love for Julie, and is sent back to prison for violating his parole. Soon after, Warren dies of his wounds, leaving behind a letter which exonerates Dave of all guilt. Julie takes the letter to the governor, who grants Dave a pardon, thus freeing him to begin a new life with Julie.
