Cast & Crew
Cub newsreporter Jay Walker is assigned to investigate the activities of Ducket Nelson, a notorious bandit. Driving in the country, Jay is held up by Nelson, disguised as an old Gypsy woman, and he is so severely ridiculed by the newspaper staff that the owner orders him not to return until he has captured Nelson. Jay meets Dr. Runyon, a traveling medicine man (actually Nelson), but Jay poses as "the social highwayman" himself and holds up a flivver in which Elsie Van Tyler (who also claims to be a female crook) is riding. Through an escaped convict, Jay learns the doctor's true identity but is himself denounced by Runyon as the criminal he purports to be. Jay accidentally rescues a child from a bank safe, then pursues Nelson and the convict aboard a moving freight train, which ironically takes them into a prison yard.
