Cast & Crew
W. J. Ferguson
John Smith, after unjustly serving a prison term, is discharged, and under the name of Hilliard he obtains a position with Martin Lang, who sends him to smooth out his domestic affairs. Smith is received coldly by Mrs. Lang and the servants, but his likable personality wins them over and peace is restored in the house. When he is made treasurer of a local charity organization, some of his former associates try to blackmail him into splitting the money; and when the funds are stolen and the chauffeur is murdered, he refuses to talk and is arrested. At the trial, Haynes, his probation officer, produces the real criminals, thus exonerating him without revealing his past. Haynes, realizing that Hilliard/Smith is in love with Mrs. Lang's secretary, destroys all records pertaining to John Smith and informs Hilliard that John Smith is dead.
