Criminal mastermind Kate Westhanger (Genevieve Tobin) is planning something big, that much is for sure, and inspector Pemberton (Jack Hulbert) has decided to stick to her every step along the way to catch her red-handed, wven though he has not the slightest idea what she's up to and he has totally fallen in love with her. The only thing Pemberton does know for sure is it has to do with shipowner Lord Flamborough (Francis L.Sullivan), railroad owner Sapson (Frank Cellier) and mineowner Boltover (Peter Haddon). But even when Kate's gang breaks into a bank and steals hardly any money - and the money that is taken is stolen by Kate's right-hand-man Gregori (Noel Madison) against her express orders -, that doesn't give Pemberton much of a clue ... until he puts the pieces of the puzzle together in another way and figures Kate and gang are planning to steal a gold shipment worth 600.000 Pounds which will reach British shores by one of Flamborough's ships and is to be transported to London by Sapson's train - but by the time he figures that out, Sapson's train has already disappeared to God knows where. Eventually though Pemberton figures that God-knows-where must be one of Boltover's mines, where some seemingly abandoned railroad tracks are leading too ...

Meanwhile, in the mine, where Kate and gang are hiding out with the gold, Gregori takes over Kate's gang, even though his criminal mind doesn't even remotely match hers - which makes Kate send the trucks containing the gold back to Flamborough's company, just to get back at Gregori and her disloyal men.

Eventually, Pemberton and the police arrive on the scene on a handcart, which leads to a shoot-out, with Kate's gang managing to escape in their cars - and Pemberton and Kate chasing them down by train engine.

Ultimately, Kate's whole gang is arrested, only she is let go, and Pemberton even marries her in the end.

Arthur Wontner can be seen as Kate's uncle/accomplice who is ultimately shot by Gregori.

 

Over-complicated and over-convoluted on one hand (as Edgar Wallace-stories tend to be) and childish on the other, Kate plus Ten is far from being a great movie. However, it's light-hearted enough in approach to be harmlessly entertaining, does feature some nice sequences like the train engine-car chase, and is well-acted by all of the involved.

Mildly enjoyable, but utterly neglectable.
