Quick Overview

Starring Clara Bow, George Hackathorne, Elliott Dexter, Margaret

Livingston, Alec B. Francis

Directed by James P. Hogan



Print: black/white

Runtime: 60 min.

Genre: drama

Print Quality: B



The drama opens with a prologue in which an innocent boy (Eddie

Phillips) is sent to the electric chair and executed before the governor

(Joseph Kilgour) can get through to save him. The actual story involves a

contention by George Harrington (Elliott Dexter) that he can have an

innocent man convicted for murder. His friend Harry Phillips (Robert Ellis)

takes him up on the bet, and they choose Dan O'Connor, a recently

reformed crook (George Hackathorne) as the innocent party. O'Connor

agrees because the men offer to pay him and he needs the money to help

his mother (Mary Carr) and marry his sweetheart, Delia Tate (Clara Bow).

So Phillips leaves town and O'Connor is arrested when he tries to pawn

some items with Phillips' monogram. He is convicted of murdering Phillips

on circumstantial evidence and sentenced to die. In the meantime,

Phillips has been killed -- Harrington murdered him in a fight over Mona

Caldwell (Margaret Livingston). Mona convinces Harrington to deny any

involvement in the bet, and it looks like O'Connor will be executed.

Mona's guilty conscience forces her to reveal the truth, thus saving

O'Connor's life.
