Plot Summary
Unlucky Steve (Edmond O'Brien), a convicted felon, is released from prison after undergoing an experimental procedure that erases from his brain all criminal impulses -- the side effect being permanent memory loss. Using beautiful blonde Peg (Audrey Totter) as bait, Steve's old cronies -- Lefty (Ted de Corsia), Arnie (Horace McMahon) and Cookie (Nick Dennis) -- kidnap the amnesiac ex-con to try and locate the money Steve hid prior to his incarceration.
