Based on the same play that inspired John Ford's masterpiece of 1935 with Victor McLaglen in the role played here by Hansen. Seeing a chance to flee the poverty that surrounds him, the oafish but gentle Hansen decides to turn an IRA comrade in to the police. He plans to use the reward

appearance of a young Ray Milland in his second movie role.
