Probation (also known as Second Chances) is an American Pre-Code 1932 film directed by Richard Thorpe and starring Clara Kimball Young and Betty Grable. The film was distributed by the Chesterfield Motion Pictures Corporation.
Ruth (Betty Grable) is a minor who is running with an uptown, older man; Ruth's brother Nick, (John Darrow), is unaware of kid sisters activities. Ruth is turned into the Juvenile authorities by the well meaning Mrs. Humphries, (Clara Kimball Young). Nick finds the man in their apartment and proceeds to be arrested for beating up the man, who runs away before Nick is arrested. Nick is taken to Night Court and remanded to the custody of the judges, (J. Farrell MacDonald), niece, Janet, for six months as her chauffeur. Janet, (Sally Blane), is the fiance of Allen, (Eddie Phillips), who is coincidentally the man who was beaten up by Nick.
