An insane murderer is on the loose, and gunning for the men who put him away. Will Fitch is on the list, and co-opts Claude Babbington to try and stop him from meeting a grisly end.
The reference in the trial scene to workhouses is a reminder that they still existed in England at the time, though since 1930 they were officially called Public Assistance Institutions until their final abolition in 1948.
The synchronisation between the 'studio' car driven by Claude Babbington (Claude Hulbert) and the back projection does not match up, in that notwithstanding the bends in the road, his hands never move the steering wheel to follow the course of the road.
