Synopsis

Tony Driscoll and Joseph Brant pool $200,000 to finance a bootlegging venture and take a ride together on a train. Tony meets Nan Parker on the train and conceals the money in her coat. Brant hires two gunmen to stick up Tony and himself but the holdup is a failure, for it is interrupted by detectives looking for stolen jewelry. The jewelry is found on Tony (planted there by Al Corvini, one of Brant's henchmen), and Tony is arrested and taken off the train. Released on bail later, Tony charters an airplane and returns to the speeding train. There is a gunbattle, and the police arrest Brant and his men. Tony is cleared of the charges against him and decides to go straight, having fallen in love with Nan.
