Silk Lennox (Lon Chaney jr) is a nightclub owner who is slick as can be - and he has to be, too, because he's also a powerful mobster who has his hands in every major heist in town. The police know about this of course, but they can't stick anything on Lennox, because he always manages to provide a waterproof alibi. Eventually, the G-men take over, and Lennox is brought in on a murder charge, a murder he actually committed, but all the G-men can do is to hold him in a cell for a few hours, until his shyster springs him free. Plus, Lennox' stay in the holding cell even seems to have paid off, since there he has made the acquaintance of master safecracker Farley (Jack Mulhall), a man he could very well use in his organisation ... and wouldn't you know it, before you know it, Farley has sprung himself from the cell and joined Lennox' gang. The police are of course on the lookout for Farley, first and foremost in Lennox' nightclub, but Lennox manages to keep him under covers. Then he figures that it might be a good idea to stage another heist while the police are still looking for Farley - which is when Lennox' luck finally changes, because Farley turns out to be a G-man, and he has the police in tow ... and ultimately, Lennox dies in the final shootout.

Dean Benton and Marie Burton play the romantic couple, two nightclub performers who get sucked into the proceedings, but their roles are rather clumsily woven into the plot.


One of Lon Chaney jr's first starring roles, this is nothing but a cheaply and shoddily made gangster drama that lacks an interesting plot to properly carry it. And as an actor, Chaney has not yet come to full bloom and sadly lacks the proper charisma of other gangster actors of the 1930's like Edward G.Robinson, James Cagney, Paul Muni, George Raft or the up-and-coming Humphrey Bogart.
