The film begins at an newspaper office, which has just been bought out by an owner convinced that they need to spice up the paper. Part of this involves more sensationalistic crime stories and an eager young female reporter makes ovations towards a rather frisky Michael Lanyard to tell his story of his early life and misadventures. A gem is soon stolen and Lanyard is (as always) blamed for its disappearance–so he has to prove his innocence.
