~Plot Synopsis~
Pat Callaghan, a gangleader, informs his henchmen--Slaney, Bell, and Drummond--that their former
leader, Slim Jim Carey, was in reality Lord Tallbois and that Joan Ayre, Carey's daughter, is the
rightful owner of the Knayth estate. Unknown to the gang, Carey returns to spy on them through the
eyes of a portrait of himself on the mantel. At the estate, Phillip Mott, a barrister, is showing Joan the
house when Slaney, disguised as a butler, recognizes her. Carey, dressed as a tramp, learns Joan's
identity and threatens Slaney, while Bell, posing as an attorney, tells Joan of her parentage and has
her sign over money to him. The gang conspires to present Agnes De Costa, daughter of Carey's
ex-mistress, as the true heiress, but Carey informs Mott of the truth. At a banquet, Carey is shot by
the gang and dies in Joan's arms. Mott finds happiness with the girl.
