SYNOPSIS

Recently released from jail, Flicker Hayes plans revenge on the men who were responsible for his time in prison. He sets up a burglary and tips the police. In the ensuing encounter, a policeman is killed. When Red Deering, one of the gangsters, is sentenced to death, a contract is placed on Flicker's life. While hiding out in San Francisco under the alias Jerry Allen, Flicker is recognized by Pop Sims, but does not realize it. When he meets Rose Lawrence, a former prostitute who is leaving to marry Nick Gardella, a Portuguese fisherman in a small town to the south, Flicker invites himself along, thinking the town would be a good place to hide out. Pop learns Flicker's destination and, after transmitting the information to the gangsters, follows Flicker and Rose. Upon his arrival, Pop rents a room at the Gardellas'. Rose hopes that Flicker will leave, having delivered her to her destination, but the Gardellas invite him to stay for the wedding. Nick knows about Rose's past, but believes that they can start fresh after they are married. In spite of herself, Rose falls in love with Flicker and decides she cannot marry Nick. She intends to leave with Flicker; however, he has second thoughts. Discovering his gun is missing and Pop's bed is empty, Flicker sneaks out in the middle of the night. The gangsters arrive at the Gardellas', finding Rose alone in the house. They believe Rose knows more than she is saying and decide to use force on her to get her to talk.

Waiting for the bus, Flicker learns that the gangsters are at the Gardellas' and plan to kill Rose because of him. When the bus arrives, Flicker does not leave, instead he returns to the Gardellas'. He convinces the gangsters that Rose knows nothing and also tells Rose that he has no intention of taking her with him. Not realizing that the gangsters intend to kill Flicker, Rose lets him go, believing that he no longer loves her. Before their wedding, Rose confesses her feelings about Flicker to Nick. But Nick repeats his belief that everything starts fresh with their wedding which then takes place as planned. +
