He meets his friend Jerry Burke at the restaurant of Jack Dempsey where the Manassa Mauler consoles him. Delphine breaks her contract and aided by her friend Dot Frost escapes her manager, Antonio Grezato and sails for Europe on the "Normandie," disguised as a school teacher. Danny and Jerry are also on the boat. Delphine is impersonated by Maizie Marshall who closely resembles her. Maizie does this at the instigation of Nick Harrington, a suave crook who has recognized Delphine and sees a chance for some dishonest doings.
