Overview

Veteran matinee-idol James Kirkwood starred in this low-budget melodrama from poverty row organization Gotham Productions as Officer Jim Ryan, whose girlfriend, Alice (Edna Murphy), proves a dead-ringer for noted criminal Dorothy Stone. When Jim refuses to arrest Alice for a crime actually committed by Dorothy (also Edna Murphy), Jim faces suspension from the police force. In order to find evidence to clear herself, Alice impersonates Dorothy but the ploy fails and she is kidnapped by gang. She is saved in the nick of time by Jim, who proves once and for all that Dorothy and not Alice is the head of the crime ring. Brunette Edna Murphy was one of the many also-ran "flappers" appearing in the wake of Colleen Moore and Clara Bow. She was at one point married to director Mervyn LeRoy.
