A couple of holdovers from the silent era, Kenneth Harlan and Edna Murphy, starred in this below-average Universal serial directed by the prolific Ray Taylor. Murphy's father (William Worthington) is falsely accused of murder, but Secret Service agent Harlan believes the real culprit to be the leader of a gang of smugglers. Unfortunately, it takes Harlan ten rather dull serial chapters to prove his point. A brunette flapper star of the 1920s, Edna Murphy was once married to director Mervyn LeRoy. She retired shortly after making the less than inspiring Finger Prints.
