Although he bore no relation to Douglas Fairbanks, William Fairbanks cashed in on the last name by specializing in roles that required stunt work. This lesser Fairbanks, however, was definitely of the low-budget variety, as this effective, but obviously cheaply made Columbia programmer illustrates. Jack Curtis (Fairbanks) is quite wealthy, but when he falls in love with thrill-seeking flapper Peggy Howell (Pauline Garon), he goes to work for her family as a chauffeur just to be near her. Peggy figures out his real identity quickly enough, but keeps mum. Curtis comes to her aid when she gets entangled with a society crook known as Captain Winslow (Lloyd Whitlock). The heroic young man saves Peggy from drowning, and pursues Winslow and his associate when they steal jewels from Peggy's mother (Adelaide Hallock). After retrieving the jewels and giving the crooks their just desserts, Curtis easily wins Peggy.
