Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The publicity packet for The Mystery Club boasted an "all-star cast" -- which, by 1926 standards, it was. Nat Carr, Henry Herbert and Jed Prouty play the three members of the Mystery Club who enter into a wager predicated on the notion that each of the men will be able to commit a crime and escape undetected and unpunished. Soon thereafter, the club members are led to believe that a fourth, unknown party is stealing the ill-gotten gains from their various crimes. The topper comes when one of the clubmen is apparently murdered. But hero Dick Bernard (Matt Moore) discovers what the audience suspected all the time -- that the "dead" man has been systematically robbing his comrades.
