Plot[edit | edit source]
After finishing college, Bob Cain (Tyrone Power) is on the job hunt. However, the reputation of his embezzling father, Robert Cain Sr. (Edward Arnold), precedes him, making it all but impossible to find gainful employment. With few options left, Cain resorts to crime by joining up with the gangster Mickey Dwyer (Edward Arnold) and his gang. Cain's precarious life as a criminal becomes even more so when he falls for Dwyer's girlfriend, Lucky Dubarry (Dorothy Lamour).
