Compelled is a 1960 film that follows Paul Adams (Ronald Howard), a convict trying to turn his life around. Locked away for several years, Paul's prison sentence finally comes to an end. The ex-convict then builds a respectable life after leaving prison, working as an engineer and marrying a young woman named Carol (Beth Rogan). However, Paul struggles shaking his past life of crime. Old friends of his, Fenton (John Gabriel) and Grimes (Jack Melford) contact him, asking him to help them with a job. He knows that he should not take part in the jewelry theft, and he tells them he will not. Fenton and Grimes do not like that answer and end up blackmailing him, forcing him to join them in pulling off a major jewelry heist. Will Paul continue his old habits after completing this job, or will the police catch up to him again? Ramsey Herrington directs this classic crime drama about an ex-convict trying to shake his old life.moreless
