Raoul Walsh directed his brother George Walsh (Fox's answer to Douglas Fairbanks) in this crime drama. Dave Henderson (Walsh) is an orphan who receives an inheritance from a wealthy man. But Dick is both naive and wild, so some bookies manage to relieve him of his money. When he realizes that they aren't going to return the money as promised, Dick takes matters into his own hands and steals it back. He is arrested and sent to prison, but not before safely hiding the loot. After five years he is released, but he's not exactly free -- both the cops and the bookies' gang want to know where the money is and they won't leave him alone. Dave manages to trick both sides of the law, but in the end he reforms and returns the money to the men he stole it from.
