Movie Info

From low-rent company Invincible comes this hardy survivor, a cheap-looking but fairly engrossing account of a convicted bank robber who, about to be deported, escapes from Ellis Island with the assistance of a mystery man with less than altruistic motives. Enter immigration official Gary (Donald Cook) and his comic sidekick, Kit (Johnny Arthur), who together with the escaped man's daughter, Betty (Peggy Shannon), go up against a gang of desperados willing to commit murder to achieve their goal. Bradley Page, Joyce Compton, and Maurice Black also appear in this low-budget caper directed by genre specialist Phil Rosen.
