A blood-and-thunder novel by Sydney Tremaine was the launching pad for the British The Auction Mart. Charles Quartermaine plays a no-good lout who forces his daughter Gertrude McCoy to become a criminal. McCoy goes through life assuming that all men are as rotten as her dad. Virtuous Gerald Moore proves her wrong. As a result, she gives up the criminal life, but not until she's had a few life-threatening scrapes.
