Synopsis by Hal Erickson
"It" girl Clara Bow gets to do some heavy emoting in Shadows of the Law. Arrested for a crime she didn't commit, poor Mary Mathews (Bow) serves a term at New York's Welfare Island. Upon her release, she is confronted by Baron Lirgard (Stuart Holmes), the man who framed her. The Baron convinces Mary that she has no other choice but to join his criminal gang -- which certainly seems to be the case, since Mary's own father (Ralph Lewis) is already under Lirgard's thumb. Our heroine pretends to go crooked, but in reality she is carefully plotting her revenge against the treacherous Baron and his mob.
