Motor mechanic Dan Brady (Mickey Rooney) lacks funds for a heavy date with new waitress Vera, the type of girl whose life’s ambition is a fur coat. When he embezzles twenty dollars from his employer, he ends up going in debt for a hundred. Thereafter, every means he tries to get out of trouble only gets him deeper into crime, while everyone he meets is out for what they can get. Peter Lorre co-stars.
