Stage star Elsie Ferguson gives moving pictures a try in Counterfeit. Elsie plays a woman of mystery who takes a vacation in Newport. Coinciding with her visit is a flood of counterfeit money that has popped up in every merchant's cash register within a radius of fifty miles. It looks for a while as though Elsie is the culprit, but don't be so sure. A "surprising ending" that any astute member of the audience could have seen coming from Reel One caps this enjoyable star vehicle.
