In 19th century England, the authorities are baffled by the incredible good luck of condemned prisoner John Marriott (Alfred Ryder). Every time Marriott is brought to the gallows, some accident or other occurs and his life is spared. Laughing contemptuously, Marriott tells his captors that no one will ever be able to hang him. It seems that he has already had a vision of his death, and he knows that he can only meet his doom at the feet of a lion--and there aren't too many lions in the British Isles (or are there?)
