Viola Dana was Metro Pictures' top star when False Evidence came out in 1919. Promised in marriage to wealthy Lot Gordon (Joe King), Scottish lassie Madelon MacTavish (Dana) prefers Lot's poor relation Burr Gordon (Wheeler Oakman). The wisdom of her choice is proven later on, when a vengeful Lot tries to rape the girl. She stabs the bounder, whereupon Burr gallantly takes the blame. When Lot recovers, Madelon fesses up and agrees to marry him if he won't prosecute Burr. It takes the Hand of God to sort this one out.
