This witty Max Marcin play became an entertaining vehicle for Clara Kimball Young in 1919; in 1927, it became an entertaining program flick for Universal Studios. Here, Betty Compson takes on the part of Nan Carey, the female detective who's out to trap a gang of crooks. The gang is planning to rob a group of wealthy people. What they don't know is that this supposedly rich family is also a gang of crooks with robbery on their minds. Romance transpires between Nan and Tom Palmer (Kenneth Harlan), an unwilling member of the rival gang. This comic crime thriller was nicely done with many amusing touches.
