1-SHEET WINDOW CARD bere-§$ TORY Big Mike Eagan (Joseph King) a reformed racketeer, is sentenced to two years in prison for slugging a policeman, He had attacked the officer deliberately in order to be put away because Ed Slayden (Richard Purcell) a gangster, had sworn to take him for a “ride’’. Ken Williams (Craig Reynolds), a smart young reporter, gets the exclusive story of Eagan’s reason for going to prison from Jane Rogers (June Travis), Big Mike’s secretary. Several months later, within the walls of the prison, Slayden gets hold of a knife and starts a riot in the laundry plant, planning to kill Eagan, but the former racketeer is saved by Dan Varner (Addison Richards) a guard. Dan Stone (Charles Middleton), another guard, and ‘Pop’ Anderson, (Henry Hall) former confidence man and now prison librarian, are also in the fight. When Jane Rogers comes to visit Mike, he tells her he has three hundred thousand dollars hidden away in a safe place. He is about to tell her where the money is hidden but stops when he sees Stone is listening. Eagan comes up for parole, which is granted on recommendation of the Warden, (Joseph Crehan.) Varner, the guard, goes to Mike’s cell to release him and finds that he has been shot through the heart. Detective Captain Rourke (Barton MacLane), of the city police, is sent to the prison to solve the murder. He gives Slayden the third degree but gets no information from him. In the meantime, Ken and Varner search Mike’s clothing. Ken finds an envelope with “Epigrams of Marcus 3-SHEET PRICES 6-SHEETS RMN rato ae gee ra tate ek T5e each ESRC SE Dre rere pistes Ses eee 706 each 2 O ANG av OR ihn hho ok ha sis se 65¢ each 3:SHEETS ESC EAS ei ie tad oo Re 40c each.
