Plot

As described in a review in a film magazine,[2] Connemara Moore (Prevost) has two suitors, one likes bobbed hair, the other does not. In escaping from both she enters the car of David Lacy (Harlan), a stranger which proves to have been stolen from bootleggers and is swept into a succession of exciting situations including an attack by hijackers, a fight in a private yacht, and rescue by the stranger – who takes her to his beautiful home to which her own party is brought. Eventually it turns out that the hero was looking for adventure and found romance as well and that the girl has become enmeshed in a trap set by revenue officers. When the time for the show-down comes, she has only one side of her hair bobbed and this means that the handsome stranger has won.
