Mary Dawson ( Alice Brady ) is determined to repay financier Jim Franklin ( Frank Losee ) for sending her father ( William B. Mack ) to Sing Sing in violation of a promise to drop his charges of theft. She and fellow crook Boston Blackie ( David Powell ) steal some gold being shipped to Franklin to satisfy his creditors. However, Daniel Regan ( George LeGuere ), the ship's purser who unwittingly aided Mary in her theft, is arrested and accused of the crime. Mary and Boston Blackie return the gold in order to clear Regan, while Franklin commits suicide when the gold is delayed.
This 1922 crime/drama was based from the short stories "A Problem in Grand Larceny" and "An Answer in Grand Larceny" by Jack Boyle, produced by Famous Players-Lasky Corporation and distributed by Paramount Pictures Corporation, starring Alice Brady and David Powell. Tragically, my search for this early Boston Blackie film finds it listed as lost. Hopefully a copy survives and resurfaces for public viewing.
