Description by OLDIES.com:
THE MOLLYCODDLE (1920): Richard Marshall's forefathers were all red-blooded American heroes, but he himself is a pampered playboy – a "mollycoddle." The chance to prove his valor unexpectedly arrives while vacationing on a yacht cruise. He discovers that the ship's owner, Henry Van Holkar, is secretly running a diamond smuggling ring out of Arizona, using Hopi Indians as his unwilling accomplices. Richard decides to sneak onto the Indians' reservation and expose the smugglers himself. Up until now, however, Richard has demonstrated no bravery or athletic ability whatsoever, so he can't do it alone. Virginia Hale, a sexy female spy on the trail of the smugglers, reveals herself to help Richard find the courage that would do his ancestors proud - provided Van Holkar and his men don't kill both of them first!
THE MATRIMANIAC (1916): Jimmie Conroy is determined to marry pretty young heiress Marina Lewis. Her millionaire father, however, wants her to wed his hand-picked suitor. The couple try to elope on a train, but thugs in the employ of Marina's father snatch her away. Jimmie will go to any lengths to get his sweetheart back – including evading police officers, scaling the side of a building, leaping from rooftop to rooftop, and even doing a tightrope act on some telephone wires!
