The House Of Secrets is owned by Leslie Fenton and he's come over to the United Kingdom to claim his legacy. However as it turns out once he gets there he finds it occupied by Muriel Evans a girl he met on the boat coming over and her family and the family runs him off his own property like he was a trespasser.
In addition to that American gangster Noel Madison and a pair of henchmen come over on the same boat because they hear that there is pirate treasure at that same estate. Also over in the United Kingdom is Sidney Blacker chasing Madison for a murder he did on this side of the pond.
There's a whole lot of people interested in Fenton's newly acquired real estate and that includes the Home Secretary of the United Kingdom himself. A lot of plot for a B picture out of poverty row studio Chesterfield Pictures.
It's all quite silly and the various elements don't mix well and no coherent story is ever established. Some good players look very silly in this one.
