Storyline

J. Smith, a millionaire, hates his name. It is so common, he thinks. He devises a scheme whereby he will exterminate the patronymic by offering $2,000 each to all bachelor Smiths who will agree not to marry, and to all maiden Smiths who will marry and change their name. Eddie Jones, who is "down and out," decides to pose as a Smith and reap the reward. He makes a hit with the old man and is retained as his secretary. While in this work he meets Isobel Smith, the daughter. Mutual love grows. The great scheme fails, of course. There are not enough millions in the world to pay off all the Smiths. And Eddie's plan to marry Isobel almost fails, for Smith avows his daughter shall never wed one of his name. But Eddie confesses his pseudonym and all ends happily.
