A prize-fighter and a professional wrestler meet in a benefit match in this routine comedy-drama. Believing boxer Jack Townsend (Jack Daugherty) is his romantic rival, fortune hunter Peyson Turner (Wilbur Mack) places a stolen bracelet in his dressing-room during the match. Townsend escapes the police to search for the real thief, who turns out to be none other than the wrestler (George Kotsonaros). Virginia Brown Faire, who was named a WAMPAS Baby Star in 1923 (an award given by the Western Association of Motion Picture Advertisers to promising young actresses), had played Tinkerbell in Peter Pan (1924), and was cast as hero Daugherty's socialite girlfriend in this late-silent from Universal.
