They Made Me a Criminal

Synopsis: Johnnie is a boxer. The same evening he won the world championship, he is charged for the murder of a reporter and is taken for dead. Running away from New York, he ends up in a ranch in Arizona, run by an old lady as a work farm for delinquent teenagers. He falls in love with Peggy and became the teenagers' hero. But there is that New York Detective, Phelan, that does not believe he is dead and is chasing him... An unlikely scenario, but not a so bad film.

TO HIS CORNER.

COME ON. COME ON.

Man:
SAY, YOU'RE

A SWELL MANAGER.

Second man:
COME ON.

WHERE'S JOHNNIE? WHERE IS HE?

SNAP OUT OF IT.

ARE YOU ALL RIGHT?

HEY, BOYS,

A LITT ROOM.

HEY, JOHNNIE,

COME ON, BOY.

COME ON. YOU GOT TO SAY

A FEW WORDS TO THE PUBLIC.

OH, I DON'T KNOW

WHAT TO SAY.

THAT THING:

SCARES ME.

OH, COME ON. GO AHEAD. SAY SOMETHING.

ARE YOU:

LISTENING, MOM?

I WON, MOM, AND THERE

ISN'T A MARK ON ME,

NOT A MARK.

I'LL BE HOME SOON,

SWEETHEART,

BUT DON' WAIT UP FOR ME.

SAY, LISTEN. THIS ISN' A PRIVATE TELEPHONE LINE.

YOU GOT TO SAY SOMETHING TO THE PUBLIC.

WELL, HELLO, FOLKS.

EXCUSE ME:

FOR MENTIONING MOM,

BUT I KNOW YOU'D DO THE SAME THING

IF YOU HAD A MOTHER LIKE MINE.

WELL, ANYWAY, I WAN TO THANK YOU FOLKS

FOR ROOTING FOR ME ON MY

WAY UP TO THE CHAMPIONSHIP.

WELL, ANYWAY, I GUESS

WE'RE ALL GLAD IT'S BACK

IN THE GOOD OLD USA,

WHERE IT BELONGS.

I GUESS THAT'S ALL.

Man:
ATTABOY, JOHNNIE!

Second man:

THE NEW CHAMPION!

GREAT FIGHT,

JOHNNIE.

YOU'RE A WORLD'S

CHAMPION.

THANKS,

INSPECTOR.

CONGRATULATIONS, DOC.

GOT A SURPRISE:

FOR YOU, CHAMP.

WHAT'S THIS, MY BIRTHDAY OR SOMETHING?

YOU REMEMBER THIS?

MY WATCH.

GEE, I'M GLAD

YOU FOUND IT.

MOM GAVE IT TO ME.

SAVED UP ALL YEAR FROM

MY HOUSEHOLD MONEY FOR IT.

HA HA!

MOTHER'S DAY AGAIN.

YEAH. WE PICKED IT UP A A SIXTH AVENUE HOCK SHOP.

WE GOT THE GUY:

THAT LIFTED IT, TOO.

YOU KNOW, THIS WATCH

MEANS MORE TO ME

THAN THAT DIAMOND BEL I WON TONIGHT.

NICE WORK.

IT WASN'T ME.

IT WAS BREWSTER.

THEY JUST SENT ME

UP WITH IT.

YEAH. YOU SEE, PHELAN IS

TOO BUSY DOWN AT THE MORGUE

TRYING TO KEEP THE STIFFS

FROM ESCAPING TO MAKE A PINCH.

HA! ISN'T THA RIGHT, MONTY?

IF YOU SAY SO, INSPECTOR,

IT MUST BE RIGHT.

Johnnie:
LET DOC

KNOW WHO THE GUY IS,

AND HE'LL BE

WELL TAKEN CARE OF.

DO YOU MIND STRAPPING

THIS ON, MY GOOD FELLA?

YOU KNOW, THERE ARE

NO POCKETS IN THIS SUIT.

THE OTHER WRIST.

I SHOULD'VE KNOWN, YOU BEING A SOUTHPAW.

FIRST HOLE.

YOU BET.

FIRST HOLE.

THAT'S SOME WRIS YOU GOT THERE.

YEAH. I GUESS I GO PLENTY WRIST THERE.

SAY, I WAS A THE FIGHT TONIGHT.

YOU SURE GOT A FUNNY WAY OF

HANDLING YOURSELF IN THERE,

LEFT-HANDED LIKE THA WITH YOUR RIGHT STUCK OUT.

THAT'S THE FIRST THING

ONE NOTICES ABOUT A MAN,

HIS STANCE,

MORE THAN HIS FACE.

YOU KNOW, A LOT OF PEOPLE LOOK ALIKE,

BUT NO TWO PEOPLE EVER

STAND JUST THE SAME WAY.

THAT'S A GREAT THEORY

YOU GOT THERE, PHELAN.

IS THAT HOW YOU:

IDENTIFIED BARNEY SCOFIELD?

YES, INSPECTOR.

YOU'D BETTER GET ALONG

BACK TO THE MORGUE.

THOSE DEAD ONES MAY START TROUBLE

IF YOU LEAVE THEM ALONE TOO LONG.

OK, INSPECTOR.

A NEW ONE:

YOU'RE RIDING?

NEW ONE? HA!

WHY, HE'S BEEN WITH THE

DEPARTMENT EVER SINCE I HAVE,

ONLY HE'S

ON MORGUE DETAIL,

WHILE I'M

AN INSPECTOR.

FUNNY THING.

HE SOMEHOW GOT THE IDEA

HE WAS A GREAT DETECTIVE,

MADE ALL KINDS:

OF PINCHES,

TILL ONE DAY, HE MADE THE WRONG ONE.

TALKING:

ABOUT PHELAN?

YEAH. REMEMBER HIM PUTTING

THE FINGER ON BARNEY SCOFIELD?

AND FINDING OU HE WAS WRONG

AFTER THEY BURNED

SCOFIELD IN THE CHAIR.

NO FOOLING.

HE DID THAT?

ALL RIGHT, JOHNNIE.

LET ME KNOW WHEN

YOU'RE READY TO GO.
