On vacation, Tom Lawrence--The Falcon--and his Brooklyn-born sidekick 'Goldie' Locke meet cute with a little girl named Annie whose nurse has just been murdered. Accompanying Annie home, The Falcon is arrested for kidnapping, but bailed out of jail by a mysterious woman (Helm). A labyrinthine plot then unfurls involving silk smuggling, a steamship called the S.S. Citadel and an ex-bootlegger named Duke Monette. Written by

In the opening of the film, The Falcon and Goldie are on an express train, The San Franciscan, which is travelling at high speed. At no time does the interior of the car give the impression it is part of a moving train as none of the train staff or passengers have any trouble walking and the drinks served remain completely steady without any shaking from the train movement.
