1922 WAMPAS Baby Star Jacqueline Logan starred in this mystery drama as Dixie Mowbray, a young girl fleeing from a mysterious pursuer. When her canoe overturns in the lake, Dixie is rescued by Dean Richardson (Ian Keith), a young doctor. During her recuperation, they fall in love, and she agrees to marry the doctor if he promises never to inquire into her past. As it turns out, Dixie acted as the lookout for a gang of bank robbers, and her life is in danger. With the assistance of a federal agent, the gang is caught, and Doctor Richardson forgives his wife for having such a checkered past. Red-haired Jacqueline Logan is perhaps best remembered for playing a very glamorous Mary Magdalene in Cecil B. DeMille's The King of Kings (1927). Sound destroyed her acting career, but she later directed a short film in England, a life-long ambition, she said at the time.
