| Classic British Mystery
An ex-con arrives at the home of wealthy businessman Silas Wade to collect a debt. Years before the thief stole the priceless Villiers Diamond for Wade. When the crook arrives at Wade's home, the businessman claims the diamond has not been sold and therefore the crook can't be paid off. Instead of leaving Wade's home, the thief decides to stick around by going undercover as a servant.

He's not the only one who is undercover, a variety of eccentrics arrive at Silas Wade's home, all hoping to get their hands on the famous jewel. Pretty Evelyn Ankers is on hand as a relative of Wade's. While top billed Edward Ashley is not who he is pretending to be.
