Jerry is out of jail and has gone into the movies. He gets the idea by seeing a "movie nut" studying his part in the park. Jerry secures the scenario, returns to his lodging place, sweeps aside demands of the landlady and her husband for rent due, goes to his room, where he finds a sympathetic soul in the slavey. Together they rehearse a tragic scene. They rant and storm so loudly as to attract the attention of the landlord. He looks over the transom just as Jerry is stabbing the heroine. He calls the police, saying a murder was being committed. The officers throw open the door and all fall into the room. Jerry nimbly jumps over their prostrate forms, locks the door and goes off to apply for a job as an actor in the movies.
