There were two versions of Into the Net -- a 15-reel serial and a seven-reel melodrama. The story was written by Richard E. Enright, New York City's police commissioner. Apparently Enright wanted to bring the kind of literary fame to New York's finest that London's bobbies and Paris' gendarmes had. Unfortunately America's men in blue just didn't share the same aura of romance, but Enright's tales made for some action-packed film footage. Madge Clayton (Constance Bennett), a society girl, mysteriously disappears. The police suspect a master criminal is behind the girl's abduction, but her brother, Bob (Jack Mulhall), and fiancé, Bert Moore (Bradley Barker), help with the search. They unearth a scheme to kidnap another girl, Natalie Van Cleef (Edna Murphy), and the evidence takes Bob and Bert to an estate on Long Island. There, they discover a ring of international crooks, who, along with the usual robberies, also abduct girls for their boss. The two young men bring these bad guys to justice -- with the help of the New York police force, of course.
