Walter Heirs comedy, with only a few minutes of film surviving so far...
"Sure Thing" Sherman (Earl Metcalffe), masquerading as an evangelist, and Isadore Kelly (Knute Erickson) arrive in Rome, Missouri, during the county fair, intending to rob the bank while fellow conspirator Madame Le Grande (Carmen Phillips) performs her balloon stunt. Their scheme is upset by rotund village jack-of-all-trades Slim Swasey (Walter Hiers), and he wins Ollie Remus (Constance Wilson), who was on the verge of eloping with Sherman. It develops that Tinkle (Mary Jane Irving), a child whom Slim has found and cared for, is the daughter of Madame Le Grande. If you don't know Walter Heirs, let me tell you a little about this man. Walter Hiers (July 18, 1893 Cordele, Georgia February 27, 1933 Los Angeles, California) was an American silent film actor who died from pneumonia in 1933, aged 39. During his two decade-long acting career, spanning from 1912 to 1932, he starred in 101 films. He was a particularly prolific actor who could star in over 10 films a year. He is interred at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California.
