Edward G. Robinson is the mild cashier and amateur painter whose love for Joan Bennett leads him to embezzlement, murder and disgrace. Two stars turn in top work to keep the interest high, and Dan Duryea’s portrayal of the crafty and crooked opportunist whom Bennett loves is a standout in furthering the melodrama.
