Overview

Synopsis

I Take This Oath
I Take This Oath was the first official release from Producers Releasing Corporation (PRC), formerly known as Producers Pictures Corporation and Producers Distributing Corporation. Gordon Jones stars as rookie cop Steve Hannigan, who takes it upon himself to avenge the murder of his police inspector father (Robert E. Homans). The killer is the supposedly respectable head man of an insurance policy racket. As he probes farther into the case, Hannigan discovers that the culprit was not only a murderer, but a modern-day Judas as well. Joyce Compton, usually cast in dumb-blonde supporting roles, is a most effective "straight" heroine. Like so many future PRC epics, I Take This Oath was directed by Sam Newfield, here travelling under the alias of Sherman Scott. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Marked Men
PRC's Marked Men gets under way when hero Bill Carver (Warren Hull) is thrown into jail for a crime he didn't commit. Breaking out, Carver hits upon a clever scheme to exact a confession from the genuine miscreants. Pretending to help five mobsters escape the Law after committing a bank robbery, Carver drives them far, far into the desert, threatening to leave them at the mercy of the vultures and the sun unless one or all of them confess to the frame-up. Isabel Jewell is atypically cast as the good-natured daughter of a small-town physician. Director "Sherman Scott" is actually Sam Newfield, who helmed more PRC films than any other craftsman. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
