Cast & Crew
Gregory La Cava
Barbara Manning, a girl who since childhood has been made to believe she is sickly, visits an island sanitarium inherited from her Uncle Edgar. The cowardly caretaker has turned the place over to a gang of rumrunners to use as their headquarters and battleground to oppose their enemies, the hijackers. Barbara believes that the rumrunners and an undercover newspaper reporter (played by Richard Arlen), disguised as one of the gang, are patients. The reporter, having fallen in love with Barbara, asks her to leave because he is afraid she will be harmed. She refuses and comes to his aid when the gang, suspecting he has informed Barbara of their activities, attack him. Barbara fends them off with chloroform and surgical instruments, discovering that she is not sickly after all. Another uncle, concerned about her health, arrives on the island to find Barbara robustly healthy, holding the rumrunners prisoner.
