John Meadows (Tod Slaughter) is a benevolent Squire who takes interest in all affairs of his community, even the local prison, which he, also a justice of peace, visits almost daily. But of course, all his benevolence and respectability is only a facade, because behind locked doors, he relishes in torturing prisoners and plotting against pretty much everyone in his vicinity.

Presently, Meadows lusts after Susan Merton (Marjorie Taylor) - so he makes her father (D.J.Williams) dependent from him by buying up all of his bonds and claiming he did it out of friendship. There is one slight problem though: Susan is engaged to George (Ian Colin) ... so the Squire makes up some false evidence accusing George of poaching - but George's best friend Tom (Jack Livesey) takes the rap for the crime neither of them has committed ... and lands in Meadows' prison.

George though, a penniless but idealistic young man, decides to leave for Australia for two years to find his fortune, giving Meadows plenty of opportunity to scheme against him - and scheming Meadows does, especially after he learns that George has found gold in Australia ... upon which he gets the rumour into circulation that George has also found a wife there. Heartbroken, Susan finally agrees to marry Meadows, and the wedding preparations are well under way when George returns from Australia. In desperation, Meadows drugs George and steals his fortune - but then in a moment of weakness leaves it to his crooked accomplice Crawley (Laurence Hanray), so when George shows up at Susan's doorstep on her wedding day to prove he is worthy of her, he only embarrasses himself and proves himself to be just the penniless guy he was two years ago ... until Tom, who in prison has grown wise to the Squire's schemings, shows up with Crawley and proves Meadows to be the crook he always has beeen secretly ... and the ending sees Meadows suffering in his own prison.

 

Not a great film, but an ok period melodrama, with a clichéd plot maybe and many a plothole, but also with Tod Slaughter relishing in another bad-guy role - and while he might not have been the best and most versatile actor there was, he's always fun to watch hamming it up as a scheming villain of one sort or another.
