Surprisingly not based on a Horatio Alger story, Luck and Pluck is nonetheless a loser-makes-good yarn. George Walsh (brother of producer Raoul Walsh) plays a likeable burglar who falls in love with pretty Virginia Lee. Walsh decides to "go straight" when Lee is threatened by German spies. Soundly thrashing the villains, Walsh vows to remain honest for good and all. Fortuitously, an honest job is awaiting him, inasmuch as Lee's dad is head of the Secret Service!
