District Attorney Edgar Jones convicts some blackmailers, so other members of the gang kidnap him and try to blow him up.
This is an ambitious movie for Lubin, the most conservative of the Patents Trust companies. Mr. Jones seems to have fancied himself a bit of an auteur, because he stars and directs. Unfortunately, like many another movie, the plan that abductors have concocted is too elaborate. They divert his driver, drive him to their hideout, tie him up, show him the bomb they are going to blow him up with -- it's unconnected to the alarm clock they are using as a timer -- and go out for a beer, pausing along the way to phone Mr. Jones' new wife, who accompanies the police to a gun battle along the way.
This "I expect you to die, Mr. Bond!" attitude is still with us. Pity.
