William Russell, one of the best of the Douglas Fairbanks wannabes of the silent era, stars in Frame-Up. Russell plays a wealthy young sprout who falls in love with the daughter (Francella Billington) of a taxicab company owner. Travelling under an alias, Russell becomes a cabbie so he can become acquainted with the girl. Our hero ends up rescuing his beloved's dad when he is framed for a crime by a rival cab concern. An outsized brawl between Russell and the crooks tops off this breezy 5-reeler.
