The Wrong Road is a 1937 American crime drama film directed by James Cruze and starring Richard Cromwell, Helen Mack, and Lionel Atwill. The film is now in the public domain.


A young unmarried couple (Cromwell and Mack), whose plans for their life together have not turned out as expected, decide to steal $100,000 from the bank where the boyfriend works, then hide the money in a safe place and return for it after they serve out their prison sentences.

All goes according to plan until they get out of prison, when they find that they're being trailed by an insurance investigator (Atwill), who has a soft spot for the couple and would like to see them go straight, and the boyfriend's old cellmate, who wants a cut of the money.
