Overview

Ex-convict Steve Nichols Onslow Stevens may be a free man, but it looks like he'll never be able to escape the onus of his past life. Unable to get a legitimate job, Steve decides to become as crooked as everyone imagines him to be. Before he makes this terrible mistake, however, the truth about the shady stock transaction for which he was originally jailed finally comes to light. Typical of the low-budget fare prevalent in the 1930s, I Can't Escape is bogged down with banal dialogue and substandard production values. Onslow Stevens is good, though, as is his "B"-picture supporting cast, including Lila Lee and silent-movie vets Otis Harlan and Clara Kimball Young.
