This was one of director Walsh's few overseas ventures, but the results of the trip were not particularly successful. Cat burglar Fairbanks grows extremely attached to one of his victims, Hobson, who just happens to be the fiancee of Hale, Fairbanks' onetime back-stabbing partner. Hale

is now a successful and apparently honest businessman, but deep down he is still a two-bit crook. Hale is killed in a battle with Fairbanks, but the damning evidence points to Hobson as the guilty party. At the ensuing trial, the noble Fairbanks tries to get her out of the jam by taking the blame.

Everything turns out hunky-dory when it appears as if Hale's death was a suicide brought on by a stock market crash. Except for Fairbanks' feats of daring, little else memorable occurs.
