Plot

The Cracksman movie scenes

Charlie Drake plays honest locksmith Ernest Wright whose problem is that he cannot resist the challenge of a lock. First he is duped by a debonair con man into opening a car. He is caught by the police but is released on probation. Next the same man fools him into breaking into a house, and he lands in jail for a year. When he is released, he gets tricked into opening a safe, for which he receives a three-year jail sentence and an undeserved reputation as a master thief. Upon his release he finds himself as a pawn being manipulated by two gangs into a safe-cracking scheme but, with the help of undercover police woman Muriel played by Nyree Dawn Porter, he helps trap the crooks and clear his name.
