"Ellen Ward, a coffee shop waitress who lives in a squalid flat with her poor, bickering parents and longs for fancy clothes and fun, breaks a date with her fiancé, Donald Sanford, a low-paid lawyer, to go to a Long Island club with underworld figures Mike Harrison and Ritchie, and Mike's date Flo. After a night of dancing, Ritchie and Mike attempt a gas station holdup during which Ellen drops her purse. Questioned by police, she says that she never saw the men before that night and gives false descriptions of them. For her efforts, Ritchie sends her a hundred dollar bill and invites her 'steppin'. At the famous Moonglow Room, Charles Blake, who runs every racket in town, is struck by Ellen's attractiveness and naïvete, and he ignores his mistress, Vivian Ross. Soon Blake sends Ritchie to work in his Detroit racket and sets Ellen and Flo up in a fancy apartment. Blake, who wants to marry Ellen, travels to Chicago to get a divorce from his estranged wife, while Ellen breaks her engagement with Don, who has since been appointed assistant attorney general. When Vivian visits Ellen and threatens her with a scissors, Ellen grabs a gun. Backing away, she stumbles over a stool, the gun fires and Vivian is killed. After a jury convicts Ellen of second-degree murder, Blake's men spring her from the court building, and she is put into the trunk of a car headed for Blake's mountain hideout. The car tumbles into a ditch and bursts into flames, and although Ellen is rescued, her face is severely burned. She is secreted away to a sanitarium where plastic surgery is administered. Partly because of public agitation over Ellen's escape, Ralph Chaney, a tough, prominent attorney, is appointed by the governor as a special prosecutor to investigate crime. Don becomes one of Chaney's assistants. After repeated raids by Chaney's men on Blake's establishments, Ellen, whose facial appearance has changed, suggests that with her hair dyed brown, she could infiltrate Chaney's ranks. She becomes Chaney's informant and gives him valuable information about Blake's rivals. After police apprehend Blake's ledger in a raid, Ellen steals it. Realizing her true identity, Don visits her and tries to convince her that she is actually worse off now that she is forced to live alone in a dumpy apartment, than before. Blake interrupts them, and when Don calls him a murderer and tries to impress upon Ellen that the ledger documents Blake's sordid life, Blake shoots at Don, but Ellen blocks him and she is killed. As police arrive to arrest a horrified Blake, who sincerely loved Ellen, Don cradles her body in his arms"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
