The most "modern" aspect of this Pathe actioner is that the villain uses a motorcycle instead of a horse in the commission of his crimes. Stopping passing motorists, the highwayman relieves them of their valuables. Finally he robs one car too many, and the authorities give chase. Before long, the hectic highwayman is being pursued by two motorbikes and three cars, one of them stuffed with cops. Curiously, the chase is a mild, sedate one, suggesting that none of the drivers was willing to risk life and limb for the sake of the picture. Finally, the crook and the cops abandon their vehicles and continue the chase on foot, with the expected results.
