Based on the 1929 play by Martin Flavin. A man convicted of manslaughter over a drunken brawl is given new work duties as a valet for the warden. A group of prisoners plan to escape but are ratted out by an informant. When one of the prisoners kills the informant the warden finds his new valet with the body.

10 x 8 inches. Very Good plus, with some small chips missing along the top left edge and at the bottom left corner and some small tears along the top left and right edges.
