Jimmy (Richard Cromwell) and Ruth (Helen Mack) are both from good families fallen on hard times, and they just cannot adapt to a life in relative poverty. So they decide to rob the bank Jimmy is working at - without hurting anybody, after all they are decent folks -, hide the money, then go to jail for the next 10 years, to live off the money once they are out.

Their plan works admirably, and while they are soon locked away in jail, the money is safely stored in a music box in Ruth's uncle's care, who has no idea about the box's content. There is onetiny thing though the youngsters seem to have overlooked: Roberts (Lionel Atwill), an ambitious insurance agent who desperately wants to get back the money - but who also believes in the good left in the kids, so he uses subtle methods, like releasing them on parole after two years but forbidding them to marry.

While working as vacuum cleaner salespersons, Jimmy and Ruth try to get back the musicbox witht he money inside, but that's harder than it seems because Ruth's uncle has long died and his belongings, including the box, are auctioned off, and ultimately it shows up in some guesthouse in the country. Problem is, Roberts is still on Jimmy and Ruth's trail, contemplating their every move, and the bigger problem is, so is Blacky (Horace McMahon), Jimmy's cellmate from prison, who wants his share of the money, preferably all of it. Blacky isn't shy to use his gun either ...

After a carchase and shootout of course everything ends happily, Blacky gets his just dessert, Ruth and Jimmy return the money that didn't bring them any luck, and in return, their record is cleared and they are free to marry.

 

A morality play disguised crime drama as that's pretty much cheesy as can be - but unfortunately not in a good way: All the messages in this film are delivered with the subtlety of a sledgehammer, good and evil are so distinguishable from one another it's almost embarrassing, all the characters are so terribly bland it's tiring, and the plot is far-fetched to the hilt and full of plotholes and leaps of reason. To put it quite bluntly: this is not a good movie.
