Summary
"Independent taxi driver Pop Riley is forced off his corner by a company trying to control the taxi business and, while defending himself, shoots and kills one of the gang. He is sentenced to prison. Some of the independent drivers call a meeting and ask Pop's daughter Sue to speak. Hot-tempered Matt Nolan is furious with Sue when instead of urging the drivers to action, she reports that violence will not be effective. She adds that her father just died in prison. Despite his anger, Matt starts dating Sue. She likes him, but is disturbed by his ready temper. He even starts a fight on the way to the marriage license bureau. Celebrating with friends at a nightclub the evening after their marriage, Matt and Sue are insulted by Buck Gerard, the man responsible for the attacks on the independents. Sue manages to prevent Matt from responding, but when Matt's brother Dan tries to talk Gerard into leaving, Gerard stabs and kills him. Matt refuses to tell the police who killed his brother because he wants to take revenge himself. Knowing how much Sue wants to prevent this, Marie, Gerard's girl, begs her for the money to help Gerard leave town. Matt learns about her visit and follows Sue to Gerard's hideout. Marie and Sue manage to keep Matt from Gerard long enough for the police to arrive. At the last minute, Matt empties his gun into the door of the room where Gerard is hiding, but the police find when they open the door that he has fallen to his death while trying to escape. Sue decides to leave Matt, but before she finally moves away, Matt begs her to come back and she agrees"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
