Based on the novel Lord Chumley by Cecil B. De Mille, David Belasco
(New York, 1888).
Gaspar Le Sage (Cyril Chadwick), the Butterworth family attorney and a suitor for the hand of
Eleanor Butterworth (Viola Dana), persuades a beautiful Eurasian adventuress, Annabelle Wu (Anna
May Wong), to help him steal the official plans for the coastal defense of California from Eleanor's
brother, Lieutenant Butterworth (William Boyd). Annabelle gets the susceptible lieutenant drunk at a
roadhouse, steals his keys, and gets the plans. Blame for the theft is placed on Lord Chumley
(Raymond Griffith), a British secret service agent engaged to Eleanor, who immediately sets out to
clear his own name and save the family honor. He prevents young Butterworth from killing himself,
recovers the documents, and saves Eleanor, who has been kidnaped, in desperation, by Le Sage.
