Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Ex-cop Russell Hopton, framed for a crime he didn't commit, gets a second chance in life after enduring a train wreck. His face mashed to pulp in the disaster, Hopton undergoes plastic surgery, emerging from the gauze with a brand-new face. Heading back to New York to find out who framed him, Hopton falls in love all over again with his former girlfriend Cecilia Parker, who-like everyone else--fails to recognize him. The writer/ director team of Charles W. Lamont and Ewart Adamson seemed more comfortable with the 2-reel comedies they'd been doing at Educational Studios than they were with the feature-length convolutions of Below the Deadline. The film was produced by the dying firm of Chesterfield-Invincible, then picked up for distribution by Grand National.
