Plot summary[edit]

A mobster is hiding from the law in a small town and he's running out of money, so he robs a bank and rakes in some big bucks. However, now, not only are the cops after him, but so is the local mob boss who is jealous that an outsider pulled such a job in his territory, and especially without giving him a piece of the pie.



The soundtrack for this film was in mono from the production company of Swen Productions, Inc., with or by Jonathan Daniels. See external links for TCM.
