~Plot Synopsis~
Jimmy Valentine leads a double life; he is a respectable business man during the day, and an
infamous safecracker at night. As his companions are making a getaway by train after successfully
burgling a bank vault, Jimmy defends Rose Fay from the insults of Cotton, his crony, and
consequently is sentenced to ten years in Sing Sing after Cotton betrays him to the police. Three
years later during a prison inspection conducted by her father, Lieutenant Governor Fay, Rose
recognizes Jimmy and after he convinces her that he was unjustly convicted, she obtains his pardon.
As Lee Randall, Jimmy soon becomes the cashier in Fay's bank. While warding off his old associates
and trying to lead them from crime, Jimmy also assures Detective Doyle, who has a warrant for his
arrest, that he is not the notorious safecracker. When Rose's baby sister is accidentally locked in the
bank vault, Jimmy acknowledges his identity and rescues her. Rose intercedes with Doyle, who
destroys the warrant, and she romantically embraces Jimmy.
