Storyline

A house party is in progress at the country home of John Radcliffe, the wealthy uncle of Jack Davis. A series of petty thefts have taken place, all indications pointing to the fact that the thief is evidently one of the guests. As a climax, the gold loving cup which was to be awarded to the winner of the golf tourney, disappears one night. Next morning Joseph Pryor, a detective, is sent for. Upon his arrival he is received as a guest. The following day the new loving cup arrives. Pryor places it in the large hall clock, and to the door attaches an alarm. That night the alarm raises the entire household, and Jack Davis awakens to find himself in front of the clock. Pryor then explains how Jack had undoubtedly been acting out, unconsciously, the book he had been reading. Merely a case of subconscious mind reaction. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
