Storyline

Marty has a forge in the hills, where he makes weapons for the "boys." A detachment of redcoats drive him from his lair, but he escapes capture for the time being by hiding under Eileen's cape. After numerous narrow escapes, he swims the lake and hides in an old cave where Eileen visits him daily with food. At last he and Eileen are captured, tried and imprisoned. Urged by Eileen's frantic mother, the village priest smuggles a file into Marty, and that night after cutting away his bars, Marty stuns the sentinel and by climbing the ivy covered wall to Eileen's window, rescues her also. They are married by the old priest and the next morning are on their way to America. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
