Storyline

Out of work, he arrives at the boarding-house and poses as a great actor. He is a great "hit" until the time comes to pay up, and then, having no money, he is a "frost." However, through a clever scheme, he manages to bluff it out, until his regular position is open to him. And such a job! The folks of the boarding-house receive an awful shock when, later, they see him in his true colors. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
