The wealthy president of a big railroad, who's beginning to crumble under the combined pressure of business, personal and physical problems, meets up with a pair of hoboes from whom he starts to learn how to really enjoy life in ways he never knew were possible.Written by
Railroad owner Frank Craven is taking over a competing line when his doctor orders him to take a vacation in the country. He falls off the railroad on the way and into the company of tramps James Burke and Jimmy Conlin, who believe him another tramp and delusional. Meanwhile, the other line, led by Claude Gillingwater fights back and Craven's daughter, Sally Blane, with the help of reporter Ray Walker, try to hold the situation together.
It's an amusing little comedy directed by oldtimer William Nigh, another director who had fallen from the A list with the coming of sound. He had directed Marion Davies and Lon Chaney. Now he was working for Paul Malvern and Trem Carr at Monogram. It's a decent script, with some nice understanding of how high finance operated in the period, but it's most fun when dealing with the tramps and Craven.
