A rash of horrific murders has terrorized London and baffled police. Newspaper reporter Bruce Adams finds one murder victim, a prominent doctor, while returning home from a bar. The next day, two American policemen, Slim and Tubby, who are studying London police methods, respond to brawl at a women’s suffrage rally in Hyde Park. Reporter Adams, young suffragette Vicky Edwards, Slim, and Tubby are all caught up in the fray and wind up in jail. Vicky’s guardian, Dr. Henry Jekyll, bails Vicky and Adams out, while Tubby and Slim are kicked off the police force. Unknown to anyone, however, Dr. Jekyll has developed an injectable serum which transforms him into Mr. Hyde — the “monster” responsible for the recent murders. Dr. Jekyll, ewho is secretly in love with Vicky, notices Vicky’s and Bruce’s mutual attraction. He injects himself to transform once again into Hyde with the intent of murdering Adams.

Meanwhile, Tubby and Slim realize that they must capture this “monster” in order to get reinstated on the police force. Walking down a street at night, Tubby spots Hyde (whom Slim at first mistakes for a burglar) and the boys follow him into a music hall where Vicky is performing and Adams is visiting. A chase ensues, and Tubby manages to trap Hyde inside a cell in a wax museum.
