Important note: This is not a film review. It is my ambition to add as many silent film synopsis of films that have a survival status of unknown or presumed lost. I try to do as much research as I can and it is not my intention to deceive anyone, for sometimes the film does exist and some presumed lost films are still being discovered. I am more than delighted if someone has knowledge of a film listed as lost but survives, as I wish all silent films did survive. I hope the reader enjoys this brief synopsis.
The Ritz Social Club, a Bowery cabaret, is the rendezvous of four old friends: Michael Angelo Cassidy ( Ricardo Cortez ), a trap drummer and composer; Buck ( Richard "Skeets" Gallagher ), his arranger; Izzy ( Lester Schariff ), who breaks into politics; and Trent ( William Powell ), who has become a gun-carrying gangster. Angie Miller ( Estelle Taylor ) admires Mike but surrenders to the proposals of Trent. Mike meets Marjorie Church ( Lois Wilson ), a society heiress, and five years later, having become a successful song writer, falls madly in love with her. Angie goes to Mike's apartment to congratulate him, and when Trent thinks she is unfaithful, he accidentally shoots her and hides the body. When the body is discovered, Mike is held for murder. Buck discovers evidence of Trent's guilt at the time Mike is convicted, and when Buck forces a confession from Trent, the judge reverses the verdict.
