During an argument at a Scottish inn, Captain Gordon ( Robert Warwick ) injures another officer, then flees to New York with detective Jenks ( Robert Milash ) on his trail. He soon meets Marjory Seaton ( Bebe Daniels ), an heiress whom her Uncle Tidmarsh ( Robert Dudley ) is trying to marry to the extravagant Wesley Colfax Winslow ( Lucien Littlefield ). Marjory, however, is interested in Dwight Sylvester ( Norman Selby ), a modish sportsman. One night while at a ball, Gordon spies Jenks following him and, in the course of his escape, accepts safety from a fight promoter named Harry Brooks ( Walter Hiers ). At Brook's request, Gordon substitutes for Sylvester's opponent, burglar Deacon ( James Farley ), at a charity bout, and knocks the real boxer out. Later, during a dinner party at the Tidmarsh's, Gordon is mistaken for a lord and, when the real nobleman appears, is condemned as an charlatan. The police are called, and while awaiting their arrival, Gordon prevents Deacon's attempt to rob the Tidmarsh safe. With the appearance of Jenks, who discloses that the quest for his search was to deliver a large inheritance to Gordon, Marjory declares her love for the Scotsman and a happy ending prevails.
This 1920 drama was produced by the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation and starred the popular actress Bebe Daniels. It is now listed as a lost film, hopefully a copy survives and resurfaces.
