Edmund Gilbert and daughter Lilian have lived high on the hog through his wild investment schemes. Now they are in debt to the hilt, and hope to lure one of three big financiers to dinner in one last effort for cash. Their plan seems doomed when the electric company shows up to turn off the lights. But, there's a flicker of hope when the chief company man leaves a green trainee behind to do the job so he can go to the next place. Paul Martin brings more than hope when he finds $100,000 in cash in his valise. The police were pursuing a bank robber who must have put it in Martin's valise on the trolley. Now, much madness with money ensues.
Did You Know?
The whole thing's a fake, from beginning to end.
Only the beginning, darling. Not the end.
