Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This late silent effort from Warner Bros. stars Conrad Nagel and May McAvoy. Nagel plays a wealthy young sprout who makes an unannounced visit to his mother's houseboat. Here he confronts a gang of thieves, including the lovely McAvoy. Somewhat amused, Nagel offers no protest when the crooks assume that he's a burglar. When another team of burglars shows up, posing as house guests, Nagel, having fallen in love with McAvoy, convinces the first gang of crooks to pose as servants. Caught in the Fog included a handful of talkie sequences, dispelling the then-prevalent rumor that May McAvoy suffered from a speech impediment which rendered her dialogue unintelligible.
