This is a pretty poorly acted movie: leading men Jack Mulhall and Bert Moore bring little energy or expression to their roles, although Mulhall does beat up a couple of bad 'uns towards the end of this movie about kidnapped heiresses and what happens to them. The villains don't get to act much either, although the two heroines -- Edna Murphy and Constance Bennett -- do a little better.
The best part of this New-York shot movie is the exteriors. You get a chance to see a large swath of Manhatan, and a goodly chunk of it is still recognizable, although altered: Times Square looks great and I wouldn't mind a chance to examine a few frames and see exactly what Mary Pickford movie is playing -- probably DOROTHY VERNON OF HADDON HALL.
One piece of advice, though; if you're driving from 63rd and Central Park West to the Brooklyn Bridge via Broadway, don't switch to 5th Avenue at Madison Square. Washington Square Park will slow you way down.
