This action-packed romantic melodrama stars the long-forgotten stunt actor Len Leo, whose bid to become another Richard Talmadge was none too successful. He's backed up here by a fine cast and good production values. When Cyrus Blake (Maurice Costello) finds both his jewels and his wife missing, he calls on attorney Jack Langley (Leo) to locate them. A gang of crooks led by "Dapper" Dan Hollins (Henry Sedley) seem to be the culprits. When Langley meets Marion Folsom (Alice Lake), he believes that she is Blake's missing wife. After a lot of hair-raising adventures, fights, and a jump from a high bridge, Langley recovers the jewels. In the end, he discovers that Marion is Blake's daughter, not his wife. But Mrs. Blake (Mary Thurman) reappears -- when she went in search of her jewels, Hollins had held her captive. With every last mystery solved, Langley is able to pursue a romance with Marion.
