Synopsis

Sylvia Graeme is a young, ingenuous girl whose father, Andrew, is in jail where he likely will remain owing to some incriminating papers being secured, she believes, in the apartment secretary of world traveler Dan Maitland. She is nearly surprised by Maitland and his companion Blodgett after she has broken in, and her escape is marred by leaving behind her gloves and purse. Crook Dan Anisty, also after the same papers, hovers about these events waiting for an opportunity to purloin the files. At one point he blackjacks Maitland and takes his place, trying to induce Sylvia to surrender the files by masquerading as Maitland. Maitland in turn impersonates Anisty, much to the dismay and confusion of both Miss Graeme and Blodgett. The climax is an encounter between the two look-alikes on the roof of the apartment building, with Maitland besting his double and winning Miss Graeme in the bargain.
