Harry J. Brown
Charlie Hart, ostensibly in real estate, operates an undercover bootlegging trade and is an underworld power, with no mercy for his opponents. When Ratface Edwards tips off Valletti--Hart's business rival and enemy--he is quickly eliminated by Mitter Davis, Hart's right-hand man. His business is the source of many quarrels between Hart and his wife, Margaret, who is secretly loved by John Sheridan, Hart's lawyer and best friend. Hart goes to see Valletti, who plans to get revenge on Davis, but violence is avoided; later, Valletti is found dead and Hart flees to a resort; but Valletti's men learn of his whereabouts from his young son, Bunny. Hart is caught and sentenced to a 7-year prison term. Following a prison break, he seeks revenge on Margaret and Sheridan, but realizing his son will be better off in the care of the lawyer, Hart disguises himself as Sheridan and walks into the trap he has prepared for him.
