On the verge of his superstardom at MGM, John Gilbert played the lead in the Fox production The Exiles. Gilbert essays the role of crusading district attorney Henry Halcombe, who secures a conviction for murder suspect Alice Carroll (Betty Bouton). Trouble is, Alice is innocent. Managing to escape, Alice heads to Tangiers, where she falls into the clutches of evil gambler Wilheim von Linke (John Webb Dillon). By now convinced of her innocence, Henry rescues the girl and brings her home, where he imposes a "life sentence" of marriage. The Exiles was loosely based on an adventure yarn by globetrotting journalist Richard Harding Davis.
