Stuntman/action star Maurice B. Flynn was better known to his fans as "Lefty" Flynn, and that's how he was billed in 1925's Heads Up. The Fairbanks-like story finds millionaire Breckenridge Gamble (Flynn) looking for excitement in a South American banana republic. He gets more than he bargained for when he's called upon to deliver an important message to the country's kidnapped president. In record time, Gamble foils a revolution and wins the heart of the president's pretty daughter Angela (Kathleen Myer). The excessive slapstick content of Heads Up may be due to the fact that the screenplay was cooked up by former Mack Sennett gag man Rob Wagner.
