Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Already a veteran filmmaker by 1914 (he would make his last picture in 1958), Allan Dwan occupied the director's seat in Conspiracy. Future screenwriter/director John Emerson stars as a mystery novelist who gets tangled up in a real-life melodrama. Essential to the action are a lady detective (Lois Meredith), a jittery dope addict and several secondary good and bad eggs. Dwan called the shots in his customary business-like fashion, and the result was four solid reels of thrills and laughter. Star Emerson also co-wrote the stage play on which Conspiracy was based.
