Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Based on a story by H.H. VanLoan and starring screen legend Rudolph Valentino, this melodramatic crime film finds an ex-gangster forced to trade places with an English lord. Released from prison and determined to make good for his previous indiscretions, former criminal "Swagger" Barlow (Eugene O'Brien) soon meets Lord Birmingham (also O'Brien), who also happens to be a dead-ringer for Barlow. Forced to impersonate Lord Birmingham when he is kidnapped by a determined gang of rouges (led by Valentino), Barlow attempts to get to the bottom of the case before the public catches on to the ruse.
