New Yorker, Don Counsel (Robert Lowing), who is travelling through southern Florida, is being framed by Ernest Riever (John Davidson) for a murder he did not commit. Riever is holding the real killer captive on his yacht while detectives are searching for Counsel. Pen Broome (Betty Compson), who lives with her father (Henry James) on their rundown estate, tries to help Counsel out. Riever's men find Counsel and trap him in a ballast bulkhead, but Pen rescues him. Eventually, Counsel is able to prove his innocence and the bad guys are given their due. During the film's climax, there is a battle between a Seminole Indian and an alligator that is after the film's hero, Robert Lowing.
This 1924 drama was based on the novel, Ramshackle House, by Hulbert Footner. Produced by Tilford Cinema Corporation, and starring popular actress Betty Compson, sadly it now remains a lost silent.
