What Comes of Keeping Bad Company

The grape sized flawless diamond was stolen two years ago and the thief is just getting out of prison. The diamond has never been found, and the insurance company, along with Scotland Yard, would love to discover where the Villiers Diamond was hidden. Diamond thief Barker heads straight to a large mansion and forces his way inside. The owner of the mansion has the stolen gem in his wall safe, along with more jewels stolen by our ex-con jewel thief. When the thief asks for his payment for stealing the Villiers diamond for the gentleman, he is told that there is no money, as the big diamond has not yet been sold to anyone. Without any money and nowhere to go, the ex-con thief tells the gentleman that he will stay in the mansion and become the butler. Next we meet beautiful, young Joan, the gentleman's niece, and we learn that the gentleman is tending ten thousand pounds of her money that she will inherit on her twenty-first birthday . . . But as we might guess, her money is long gone, and the gentleman is nearly broke. He and the jewel thief turned butler decide to stage a burglary and get the insurance money from it, so the gentleman turns philanthropist. He goes through the help wanted ads in the newspaper and invites a handful of out-of-work poor people to spend a week in his mansion as a small holiday on their search for better days . . . Then he and the jewel thief butler will stage a robbery and accuse one of the out-of-work visitors of the theft . . . This should work like a charm . . . . Unless one of the visitors is really a thief . . . maybe more than one of the visitors is not who they claim to be . . . . It is going to be a fun night at the mansion after everyone retires for the evening and the lights go down . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
