In this adaptation of George M. Cohan's musical, Charles Ray found himself light years away from the bashful country boys he usually played. Here he's Kid Burns, pugilist turned secretary to Tom Bennett (Donald MacDonald), heir to the fortune of the wealthiest resident of New Rochelle. Kid falls for the housemaid, Mary Jane Jenkins (Dorothy Devore) and keeps the fortune from falling into the hands of those it doesn't belong to. In the end, it turns out that Mary is the one who's inherited the estate. Kid realizes that she's now out of his league, but she doesn't care and they end up together.
