This four-reel British melodrama follows the exploits of a "gentleman thief," who plots to steal the jewels of opera diva Madame Pillard. The hero/villain utilizes the talents of a trained python to pilfer the valuable gems. Ah, but he has reckoned without the perspicacity of Detective Finn, who spends most of the film just one step behind the clever thief. The rip-roaring climax finds the criminal making his escape by dirigible, with Detective Finn hanging onto the airship's flimsy gondola. It is not for nothing that the subtitles describe Finn as "The Bravest Man in England."
