Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Stolen Orders was based on Sealed Orders, a London stage success of the early 1900s. The orders in question are delivered to an American admiral but are intercepted by the admiral's pacifistic wife. By keeping the documents to herself, the woman is convinced that she is aiding the anti-war movement. Instead, the papers inadvertently fall into the Wrong Hands, said hands belonging to a sinister German spy. The film was capped by a pulse-pounding battle in the clouds between a British aeroplane and a German zeppelin. Virtually every important "name" in the World Films stable was pressed into service for Stolen Orders, including Montague Love, Carlyle Blackwell, Kitty Gordon and little Madge Evans.
