This cheapjack melodrama gets under way when Harry Canby (Robert Agnew) commandeers a dilapidated taxi to rescue a "mystery woman" (Edith Roberts) from a gang of hoodlums. The woman is grateful, but she refuses to divulge her true identity to Harry. Our hero devotes himself to ascertaining the woman's name -- a task he could have solved simply by looking at a newspaper, since the heroine is a popular Broadway actress! Once he's figured out who she is, Harry rescues her again, this time from a treacherous understudy (also played by Edith Roberts). Phillips Smalley, a matinee idol on the downgrade, plays a major role in this minor picture.
