An ex-football player and a crooked insurance man cook up a blackmail scheme
Professional football player John Harlan is driving back from a lakeside cabin when a drunk driver named Cannon knocks him off the road. When he comes to, Harlan’s leg is shattered and Cannon is dead. His career over, Harlan goes on a bender, and a few days after his hangover clears, he dives headfirst into a life of immorality. An insurance investigator named Purvis is checking into Cannon’s death, hoping to avoid laying out $100,000 to his widow. He suspects Cannon may have survived the accident, only to be murdered while Harlan was unconscious—and the more he talks about it, the more Harlan believes it. They devisea plan to blackmail dear Mrs. Cannon, but if Harlan was a pro on the field, he’s an amateur in the underworld. Next to what the lovely widow is going to do to him, football is a cakewalk.
