Based on the Short Story: "A Problem in Grand Larceny"


Boston Blackie, a reformed criminal, is hired by society thief Mary Dawson to square accounts with Jim Franklin who sent her innocent father, Thomas Dawson, to Sing Sing prison. Franklin, a financier, violated a promise to drop his charges of theft against Dawson. Blackie and Mary team up to ruin the scoundrel financially. They steal some gold being shipped to Franklin to satisfy his creditors. However, Daniel Regan, the ship's purser who unwittingly aided Mary in her theft, is arrested and accused of the crime. Mary and Boston Blackie return the gold in order to clear Regan. However, before the gold is returned, and to avoid scandal, Jim Franklin commits suicide.
