Jewel Thieves and the Kids they Frame

The 'Sparkler' is a notorious New York City jewel thief who is famous for framing innocent bystanders for his heists, and as our adventure opens a young man and a young girl, strangers to each other, are looking in a jewelry store window when the thieves rob the store and plant some jewels on the two young people before disappearing into the bowels of the big city. They young man and the young lady are arrested and sentenced to two years in prison. They are both released from prison after 18 months on parole, and they become friends as they try unsuccessfully to start their lives over again and forget their wrong imprisonment. They quickly discover that no one will give them a job when they find out that they are ex-cons with a prison record, and they reach a point of desperation where they consider suicide to end their struggles. Finally they get mad, and want to get even, so they hunt down the Sparkler and his gang in an attempt to clear their names. They convince the Sparkler that they also are crooks and join his gang, hoping to get enough evidence to take to the police, but alas, the Sparkler is on to their ploy. One of the Sparkler's henchmen, Ratty, played by the usually good-guy Milburn Stone, remembers them from their trial from the first set-up and the Sparkler decides to turn the tables on the young couple and frame them a second time for a jewelry store burglary, insuring that this time they will be sentenced to prison for a long, long time. Of course, the kids have no idea that they have been set up once again, and it doesn't look good for these youngsters that don't have enough 'street smarts' to outfox the gangsters . . . . or do they? Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter on it and enjoy the show.
