      INFORMATION FROM IMDb

      Plot Summary
      Buck (Jones) consents to study for the ministry, and before leaving attempts
      to convince his worthless brother Jed (Curtis) to sober up and stay home
      with their mother (Lee) during Buck's absence. On the eve of his leaving Buck
      is implicated in a murder committed by Jed and his gang.
      Buck serves two years and upon his release completes his study
      for the ministry before returning home.
      People ridicule him and laugh at the "jailbird minister," as they call him.
      During one of his services, his brother and two pals enter the church
      to hide from the prison officials who are after them.
      Buck shields them, and they later come to his aid when Flash McGraw (Siegmann),
      the owner of a dance hall, has lured Hope Standish, a Salvation Army girl (Bedford),
      to his room, and Buck has to fight the whole gang.
      A girl who believes McGraw is "throwing her over" reveals that McGraw "framed"
      the murder charge on Jed and his pals.
      This gives the men their freedom and clears Buck,
      leaving him free to marry the Salvation Army girl.
