Members of the Randolph family assemble to hear how millions of dollars will be distributed according to a will, but the attorney in charge is murdered. A police lieutenant eventually finds the murderer in a film that Harrison's Reports said included "every known device to hold the spectator in breathless suspense — trap doors, mysterious murders and disappearances, screams, and bony arms protruding from behind half-closed doors, grabbing unsuspecting victims by the throat ...".[2]
