Police Detective Burns (Charles Quigley) is helping Jerry Wheeler (Rita Hayworth), a night-club singer, track down the killer of a gold-digger, for which crime her brother, "Chick," (Edgar Edwards) has been sentenced to die in the electric chair. She finds evidence that convinces her that Milton Militis (Marc Lawrence), owner of a nightclub, is the killer. She gets a job in the club as a singer in order to gain Milton's confidence and find the proof of her brother's innocence. Milton finally figures out she is spying on him, so he and a henchman take her for a ride and, with glee, planing on killing her at the same time her brother is being executed.Written by

Rita Hayworth was a woman on the upward move in her Hollywood career.
Convicted was one of a series of B films she did honing her craft before she
became Columbia Picture's ruling queen. Studio head Harry Cohn brought her
along slowly, but the results were worth it.
The role in Convicted call for a couple of dance numbers and as we know before she was Rita Hayworth she was Marguerite Carmen Cansino of the
Dancing Casinos. Hayworth is the sister of Edgar Edwards and she's trying to
break up his romance with golddigger Phyllis Clare. When Clare is strangled
Edwards is found bending over the body at the scene by a maid. Her testimony convicts Edwards and he's facing the electric chair.
That's when his loyal sister goes to work with some help from police detective Charles Quigley who never quite believed Edwards was guilty.
Other than Rita Hayworth the only other person who had any real career in
the cast is Marc Lawrence who plays both a nightclub owner and owner of the
building where Clare was killed.
Convicted is a chance to see a star being born.
