Synopsis:
Ordinary man-in-the-street Arthur Ferguson Jones (Edward G. Robinson) leads a very straightforward life. He's never late for work and nothing interesting ever happens to him. One day everything changes: he oversleeps and is fired as an example, he's then mistaken for evil criminal Killer Mannion (also Edward G. Robinson) and is arrested. The resemblance is so striking that the police give him a special pass to avoid a similar mistake. The real Mannion sees the opportunity to steal the pass and move around freely and chaos results.
