Cast & Crew
J. W. Early
In the days of hard times Dick Talmadge leads a double life: he is the indolent son of Parker Talmadge, the controlling power in the flour market; and he masquerades as The Unknown, a champion of the people and leader of the fight against high prices. Mr. Talmadge and sugar baron J. Malcolm Sweet agree that Dick should marry Sylvia Sweet, but Sylvia disapproves of Dick's worthlessness and considers The Unknown the man of her dreams. A raid on the profiteer's stored goods causes a panic among the financiers, who unsuccessfully set detectives on The Unknown's trail, then stage a grand reception as a trap for their enemy. The plot fails, but Dick is unmasked in a fight. Sylvia changes her mind about the young man, and all ends happily.
