Hoping to build up contract players Charles Quigley and Rita Hayworth
into a viable screen team, Columbia Pictures rushed the actors from one
"B" production to another. Convicted tells the story of a diligent
detective named Burns (Quigley) who is forced to arrest Chick Wheeler
(Edgar Edwards), brother of Burns' sweetheart Jerry Wheeler (Hayworth),
for murder. The more he thinks about it, the more Burns is convinced that
Chick is innocent. With Jerry's help, Burns tracks down the genuine
miscreant in the nightclub where the heroine works. Supporting player
Edgar Edwards also adapted the screenplay of Convicted from a story by
suspense master Cornell Woolrich.
