This minor but typical Roaring '20s melodrama starred Edna Murphy, a Clara Bow type, and the wife of director Mervyn LeRoy. When Edna and newspaper reporter Bryant Washburn visit a roadhouse, the joint is raided by the police, and in the ensuing melee, Edna's too-indulgent father (Ernest Hilliard) is killed. Washburn is convicted of the murder, and Edna desperately tries to clear him. With Edna's newfound evidence, the governor stays the execution in the 11th hour, and all ends happily. This modest programmer was produced by Trem Carr, later one of the founders of Monogram.
