William Powell, who spent much of his early silent career playing villains, got to play a hero in this romantic adventure, based on the novel by Richard Harding Davis. The picturesque exterior locations were shot in Cuba, but poor editing undermines the film as a whole. Roddy Forrester (Powell) has formed the White Mice club with a pal. The purpose of the club is to help those in trouble. When Roddy's father (Bigelow Cooper) sends him to the South American republic of Montebello, he gets his chance to be of service. General Rojas, the former president (Lucuis Henderson), is locked away in a prison and slowly dying. Roddy decides to rescue him, especially since he has been inspired by the general's pretty daughter, Inez (Jacqueline Logan). Colonel Vega (Ernest Hilliard), who is responsible for imprisoning Rojas, wants to marry the girl himself. Roddy is able to overpower Vega and get Inez's father released.
