Though cheaply produced and boasting a second-string cast, The Midnight Watch packed a lot of entertainment value in its brisk six reels. Roy Stewart stars as Bob Breemer, a college graduate who aspires to be a detective. Fed up with the boy's youthful arrogance, the police chief (David Torrence) assigns Bob to the midnight shift, "when nothing ever happens." Inevitably, plenty does happen during Bob's shift, including a jewel robbery which is blamed upon our hero's girlfriend Rose Denton (Mary McAllister). Proving that he isn't all brag, Bob clears his girl and catches the crooks in record time.
