The Crime That Shocked The Nation!
Brace yourself for a decidedly noir tale of "solid suspense" (Variety)! This gritty and "fast-aced" (L.A. Examiner) actioner about a perfectly innocent man framed for a perfectly devious crime delivers intense chills and pulse-pounding excitement to the bitter end!
With three thugs as accomplices, Tim Foster (Preston Foster), a disgruntled ex-cop, masterminds a foolproof million dollar bank robbery. But he's also hatched a scheme to double-cross his accomplices and frame an innocent for the crime! Joe Rolfe (John Payne) is the hapless truck driver caught in Foster's corrupt plan. In order to set things right, Rolfe tries to clear his own name and seek vengeance on the crooks, all while falling in love... with Foster's daughter (Coleen Gray)!
