He was run out of his home town for some mishap with his well off girlfriend but they're still interested in each other. In the end, the old actress gets a big break and leaves him, a bunch of guys from town try to attack the young guy for whatever he did to the girl, but his sweet heart helps him. I saw it on TCM and I can't for the life of me remember anything about who directed or starred in it. Please help!
