A wealthy couple will give anything for the return of their missing son, so Scott and Knox plan a scheme to get their dough. Knox arranges for O'Brien, a carnival showman, to portray the son, who was lost at age two. Knox is confident that the ruse will fool the couple because they haven't

seen their child as a grown man. Driven on by greed, O'Brien goes as far as to smash his fingers in a car door so they will match the real heir's. He moves in and starts romancing Moore, the couple's slightly daft niece. However, old man Barnett decides not to change his will, meaning O'Brien

won't get anything. Knox plans to kill Barnett, but Scott and O'Brien refuse to get involved. Next, Knox tries to kill O'Brien, who, in fear, tells all to Barnett. Barnett says he knew all along but kept it quiet because it brought joy to his wife to see their grown "son." Knox is finally

disgraced and O'Brien ends up with Scott. This starts off with an interesting premise, but quickly bogs down to run-of-the-mill suspense action with only a few mild thrills. The dialog is overly talky and the ending wholly unbelievable. The direction paces itself well, however, and the cast isn't

bad, giving performances that are probably better than the script deserved.
