Synopsis

Julie Kendal receives a blow on the head when she attempts to help her husband Walter apprehend a pair of crooks. As a result, she loses her memory and subsequently becomes the partner of one of the crooks, Jimmy Fitzpatrick, whose "De Luxe Annie" has deserted him. After they are nearly trapped in a country town, Jimmy and Julie escape to a nearby house which, by coincidence, is the Kendals' summer home. There they are met by Walter and Dr. Fernand Niblo, who have been following the pair all along. Julie again falls in love with her husband and agrees to submit to an operation that restores her memory.
