John Nelson, a well-to-do businessman, is escorting a woman he knows as Ethel Barry to the door of her apartment suite when a man steps out of the shadows and angrily demands to know where she has been. The embarrassed Nelson excuses himself and goes to his rooms in the same hotel. The woman rushes into his apartment followed by the man who met her in the hall. The man threatens her with violence and Nelson comes to her defense. In the ensuing fight, the man is knocked out of the window and falls to his death to the pavement many stories down. He is charged with the killing and his only witness that can prove self-defense for him has disappeared, and can not be found.Written by

Wow.......that phrase has changed its meaning. William Powell (Jim) gets arrested for the murder of some complete stranger who he starts fighting with in order to protect Natalie Moorhead (Ethel). She, however, gives him no respect and just disappears leaving Powell to receive a life sentence. He escapes from jail and pursues Moorhead. He must find her to prove his innocence.
It's a good cast although Marion Schilling's (Edith) insipid love interest doesn't merit top female billing. The story develops at a good pace and Powell is a good leading man to take you along on his journey. He has a great voice. I did have to laugh out loud when cellmate Paul Hurst (Pete) asks him if he's got any weed.
