Cast & Crew
George D. Baker
Peter Mendoza and Clare Conway, ex-criminals, are butler and maid in the home of wealthy Christopher Darley and are engaged. John Stover, who recognizes Peter as a former convict, informs Darley and tries to embroil him in a fraudulent stock scheme, but he refuses. When Stover obtains a proxy empowering him to outvote Darley, Peter contrives a general holdup of guests at a party, steals the proxy, and burns it. After escaping from the house, the couple disclose their motive to Darley; he then presents them with a country house as a wedding present.
