A skilled and dramatic filmization of one of Edgar Wallace’s best known novels. Murder, sabotage and international troublemaking form the basis of this exploit of the Four Just Men who, incognito, spend their lives breaking up dope rings and foiling plots of foreign agitators.

While incarcerated in a foreign prison, the youngest member of the quartet escapes execution by a few seconds, being rescued by two of the others disguised as higher officials. He has learned the name of an eastern conspirator; also that one of the members of parliament is responsible for a leakage of state secrets.

The casting is superb, Frank Lawton making a wistful and pathetic figure of the youngest patriot. Francis L. Sullivan as a French designer, playing one of his rare non-villainous roles, is his usual suave self as one of the four.
