Author: Pamela Short from Canada
21 July 2016

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

"Blackie" Daw ( Norman Kerry ), with but a few dollars in his pocket, arrives in Battlesburg, Iowa, and announces that the celebrated capitalist J. Rufus Wallingford ( Sam Hardy ) will shortly arrive in search of a good investment. With the help of the town's money, they arrange to erect a manufacturing plant but cannot decide on the article to be made until Wallingford hits upon a covered carpet tack, a device that attracts numerous investors. The stockholders become suspicious, but Wallingford convinces them he is straight, and he initiates a large real estate boom. The pair are about to skip town with their fortune when a financier buys out Wallingford's interest in a projected traction operation, and Eddie Lamb ( Edgar Nelson ), a local promoter for the company, reports an immense sale of carpet tacks. Wallingford and Blackie find themselves honestly rich and happily married, Wallingford to Fannie Jasper ( Doris Kenyon ), his stenographer, and Blackie to Dorothy Wells ( Billie Dove ), a daughter of a respectable citizen.

This 1921 silent comedy/drama was based on the novel adaptation Get-Rich-Quick Wallingford by George M. Cohan and George Randolph Chester of the Wallingford stories by George Randolph Chester. Produced by Cosmopolitan Productions and starring Norman Kerry, Sam Hardy, Doris Kenyon and Billie Dove. Sadly this seven reel silent film is now considered lost.
