This independently made comedy-drama was a typical vehicle for stunt actor Richard Holt. Gordon Palmer (Holt) is a lazy and cowardly rich man's son. When he and his fiancée, Aileen Merton (Kathrun McGuire), are held up by two crooks, Slug Williams (Gordon Russell) and Beef O'Connell (Fernando Galvez), he passively allows them to take whatever they want. At least he comes to life when they try to steal Aileen's engagement ring -- he scares them into giving that back. Aileen, however, is pretty fed up with him. When he discovers that his father is facing financial ruin, Palmer goes into partnership with the crooks. They attempt a get-rich-quick scheme with the use of some proxies. This leads the rich young man into all sorts of strange situations, culminating in the usual big chase, here involving a car, a train, a ferry boat, and a plane. Eventually, he makes it through all these adventures and wins back Aileen's love.
