Storyline

Bill Bumper, a tramp, finds a book containing the libretto of Faust. After vainly trying to find a comfortable and quiet place to read, he settles down on the warm side of a haystack. He falls asleep and dreams the devil appears and makes him a bargain to the effect that Bill will exchange his soul for 12 hours of worldly pleasure. Bill's every wish is granted. He meets Marguerite and the two visit a swell café, a theater and have a joy ride. At the end of the twelve hours Bill is again visited by the devil, who takes him to the infernal regions, where he pays dearly for his twelve hours of gaiety.
