~W-18-1: George Walsh and Unknown~
~Plot Synopsis~
Dave Henderson (George Walsh), an orphan who has become the beneficiary of a rich man's will,
falls in with race-track crooks Martin Tydeman (James A. Marcus) and Bokky Sharvan (Paul
Everton) who bilk him out of his $100,000 inheritance. In retaliation, Dave steals the money from
Tydeman's safe, but is caught and sentenced to five years in jail. In prison, Dave becomes friendly
with Millman, who is about to be released, and reveals the money's hiding place to him, arranging
to rendezvous at the end of Dave's term. Once released, Dave is hounded by members of
Tydeman's gang as well as the police, who are waiting for him to retrieve his bounty. While taking
refuge at the house of Capriano, an old bombmaker, Dave falls in love with the old man's daughter
Teresa. However, Capriano sets a trap for Dave, who awakens in a drugged state to find the
$100,000 missing. With the help of Millman and Teresa, Dave recovers the money, turns it over to
the police and resolves to go straight.
