Tracy plays a roughneck living in a shantytown who takes in desperate and homeless Young. She makes his forsaken shack into something of a home, while he manages to make some money doing odd jobs. Tracy meets up with a showgirl, Farrell, who is willing to support him and give him a taste of

the better life. He discovers Young is pregnant, however, and, in an effort to support her, commits a robbery. The robbery is foiled, and Tracy is wounded. Realizing how much he needs Young, Tracy runs off with her to start a new life. Cast gives efficient performances despite a script that lapses

a bit too much into sentimentality. Considering the times, A MAN'S CASTLE contains some pretty racy material (out-of-wedlock pregnancy, cohabitation) and even gives the audience a brief glance at Tracy diving nude into a river. The Production Code was put into place the year after this film was

released, putting an end to such candid film-making for a while.
