When a bank is on the verge of collapse, its president, George Fuller ( Don Bailey ), uses his own fortune to cover its losses. Unknown to Fuller, however, Monroe Simmons ( M. Everett ), his vice-president, is undermining the bank for his own purposes. Then Tom Williams ( Alfred Vosburg ), who is in love with Fuller's daughter Ethel ( Mary MacLaren ), asks his uncle, famous detective "Whispering Smith," ( Charles H. Mailes ) to investigate the case. Smith successfully uncovers Simmons' conspiracy and apprehends him and his fellow conspirators, thus saving the bank.
This 1917 silent drama/mystery was produced by The Universal Film Manufacturing Company. The survival status of Money Madness is now listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
