Storyline

District Attorney Carlisle's campaign to clean out the grafters begins with the move to indict Callahan, a police lieutenant. Ford, a henchman of Boss Rogers, brings the news. The boss is furious.

23 September 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

In the first reel of this two-part drama the plot development is unnecessarily slow. The real climax comes early in the second reel and after that one is asked to become interested in a story within a story, telling how the characters came to occupy their respective positions.
