Cast & Crew
Howard Anderson, a young American tourist who finds himself somewhat bored in Constantinople, meets Hassard, a clever crook, who determines to get his money. Hassard, meanwhile, kidnaps Mary, the daughter of wealthy American John Talbot, who is studying Byzantine ruins, and holds her for ransom. Hassard detains Anderson to show him the local slave market, where Anderson sees Mary Talbot (who has been told that her father will die if she fails to play her part). To prevent her sale to a lecherous Turk, Anderson buys her; and following his discovery of the frameup, there is a fight and he escapes with Mary. Anderson, however, is knocked senseless by one of Talbot's employees who mistake him for one of the kidnapers. Later, meeting Mary in a Fifth Avenue traffic jam, Anderson claims her as his own.
