A criminal Heliotrope Harry (Clive Brook) comes home after a stick-up job and finds his wife Lilly (Olga Baclanova) in bed with another man. He shoots his rival and deposits their baby daughter Alice (played later as an adult by Mary Brian) on a rich couple's doorstep. While serving a life sentence, Harry is updated on his daughter's happy life by his old criminal associate Froggy (William Powell). For years, his vengeful wife seeks their daughter in vain. When she finally locates their child, the father wrangles parole from a sympathetic warden. He seeks to ensure permanent protection for his daughter by luring his crazed wife into a trap where she shoots him but suffers a prearranged fatal accident while escaping. The father dies in his daughter's arms, who now knows and appreciates his true identity and love for her.[4]
