Arthur Applin's mystery novel Wicked served as the launching pad for the British silent All the Winners. Matinee idol Owen Nares stars as a world-famous sportsman with a sordid past. Nares is blackmailed by oily villain Sam Livesey (the father of popular British talking-picture actors Roger and Jack Livesey). The price for Livesey's silence is Nares' delectable daughter Maudie Dunham. The hero is able to forestall this disastrous union, but at a great personal price.
