Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
As the opening of chapter nine of Shadow of the Eagle reveals, the carnival owner, Gregory (Edward Hearn), is merely knocked unconscious. Craig (John Wayne) points a finger at a very suspicious Major Evans (Richard Tucker), but the wily director instead accuses Green (Ethan Laidlaw), another member of the board. Through trickery and deception, the bill of sale that may reveal the identity of The Eagle is passed back and forth between Evans, Green, and Craig with the latter emerging the victor. Unfortunately, The Eagle's henchmen are hiding in the getaway car and during a furious struggle for possession of the slip, Craig is thrown right in the path of an oncoming automobile.
