Plot summaryEdit

"Bobbie" Blake, (Marian Marsh), and Phillip Henderson, (Gordon Oliver), are complete strangers, looking in a jewelry store window, when a hood known as "The Sparkler", (Miles Mander), sets them up to take the rap, stashing some of the loot in their pockets, as the gang makes their getaway.

No one believes that they are innocent, not even their public defender. When they serve their time in "The Joint", no one will give them a break, with their prison record, not even their own families; and, they cannot keep a job.

Their landlady, Mrs. Abernathy, (Margaret Dumont), likes them, and encourages them to get married.

Despite the danger, Phil convinces Bobbi that their only chance is to see "The Sparkler" and even the score.
