A sharp and cynical take on politics in the 1930s, Corruption ferrets out all the dirty laundry in political and law enforcement bodies. When a young lawyer Tim Butler (played by the ruggedly handsome Broadway actor Preston Foster) is practically gifted the opportunity to become mayor, he gladly accepts. But the political machine that puts him in power intends to run the show themselves… or else! Butler refuses to be a puppet, and is summarily framed for murder and put in the lockup! Butler must emerge and expose this rotten system of government to the nation, and that’s his mission in Corruption.
