Comment
A man and a woman who have never met before are framed for a jewelry smash and grab raid and go to prison for 18 months. When they are released they meet up and struggle to get jobs becaues of their record and try to find a way to clear their names. Whilst the basic plot is a good idea, but the script gets lost in the middle as the plot drags and then has a rush at the end. Marian Marsh is fine in the lead but Gordon Oliver is very flat as her co-star, but there is good support from Margaret Dumont as the supportive landlady.
