This neat little British thriller features Williams as a mousy bank clerk who has finally had it with handling other people's money and now wants to get his hands on some of the cash. He robs the bank, writes a suicide note to establish the fact that he was remorseful for what he did,
then goes aboard a ship. He also leaves a bit of money behind so there will be no question in the minds of the police. It will look as though he spent much of the cash, was overcome by guilt, and jumped overboard. Plans go awry when a ship's steward finds the note and the remaining money, steals
the cash, and gets rid of the last letter. Then the steward is mysteriously killed. Williams has nowhere to turn until he meets Alyn, a beautiful young woman, and tells her what he's done. With her help and the aid of detective Ince (who also directed), they locate the murderer. In the end,
Williams will have to do some time for the robbery, but he knows Alyn will be waiting outside the prison to welcome him into her arms. Ince was an American actor who appeared in many films, including LITTLE CAESAR, THE BIG GAMBLE, and THE TENDERFOOT. In later life, he became a director and was
responsible for a number of low-budget pictures out of Britain, including MURDER AT MONTE CARLO. He died in a traffic accident in England at the age of 50. His two brothers were John and Thomas Ince.
