Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Whenever she was directed by her husband Robert Z. Leonard, Mae Murray ceased behaving like a Movie Star and started acting like a human being. Such was the case in Danger! Go Slow!, in which Murray was cast as a tough, streetwise sneak thief. When the cops close in, she hops a freight to a small rural town, where to protect herself from molestation she disguises herself as a boy. Adopted by a kindly old woman (Lydia Knott), Murray decides to keep up her masquerade, though slowly but surely she divests herself of her criminal tendencies and learns to enjoy being honest. The story ends happily as the heroine, at last revealing her true gender, marries the old woman's son (Jack Mulhall), whom she has saved from financial ruin.
