His big-time stardom a thing of the past, George Walsh tried to substitute quantity for quality in the waning days of the silent era, churning out one low-budget vehicle after another. In Back to Liberty, Walsh plays the flunkey of master jewel thief Edmund Breese. Our hero falls in love with well-bred heroine Dorothy Hall, never dreaming that the girl is Breese's daughter. Unwilling to expose Hall to his seamy lifestyle, Breese demands that Walsh give her up, offering him a huge cash settlement if he will forget all about the girl. Instead, Walsh goes straight, quitting the gang cold turkey. When Breese is murdered by his confederate Jean del Val, Walsh is accused of the crime, but Hall manages to extract a confession from the real culprit.
