    Entertaining, old-fashioned Hollywood crime melodrama with a solid cast of performers and attractive leads. Nolan steals the film as the master mind (hence a college graduate) of a counterfeiting gang while Morris is the lantern-jawed T-man who infiltrates the gang. Graham and Marsh are sisters caught in the gears of the criminal machine. A rare 1930’s Columbia picture courtesy of ye old Jon Rarefilmm!

    Never miss an opportunity to see Lloyd Nolan, one of the greats.
