Detective Swift served as a movie vehicle for John G. McGraw, the colorful and gloriously egomaniacal manager of the New York Giants. Filmed during the Giants' celebrated world tour, the film casts McGraw as an international adventurer, encountering perilous situations all over the globe. The pencil-thin plot is motivated by a jewelry theft, masterminded by a slick Raffles type. After many hairbreadth escapes and near-misses, Detective Swift (McGraw) corners the crook and saves the heroine (where did she come from?). The reviewer for Variety was impressed by John McGraw's performance, but complained that the film itself left a great deal to be desired.
