Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein

Although appearing a bit stout in his tights, Joe Bonomo, of saltwater taffy and physical culture fame, became a star with this action serial set in a circus milieu. Bonomo's acrobatic prowess became so popular that a grateful Universal added five extra chapters to what had been projected as a ten-chapter offering. Bonomo played circus acrobat Welles "Red" Landow, Louise Lorraine was the heroine, tightrope artist Trixie Tremaine, and such studio stalwarts as Slim Cole, Sam Polo, Monte Montague, and Albert Prisco added extra color as a gang of Hindu agents battling over an invaluable ruby.
