This action picture has everything anyone could possibly want out of a Richard Talmadge picture -- a lot of stunts and death-defying feats, and just enough convoluted plot to keep it all together. Because his love for prize fighting interferes with his studies, Perry Whitman, Jr. (Talmadge) is expelled from college. He then gets in trouble with his father (Charles Clary) for throwing a wild party which is raided by the cops. Attending the party is Barbara (Mildred Harris), who needs a hundred dollars so she can return home. Perry carries her over the roof to elude the police. When news of the party hits the papers, the senior Whitman gives his son a hundred dollars to go away, but the bill blows into a fight arena and Perry has to battle the crowd to get his hands on it. His performance is so impressive that he is signed on to fight the Bolivian Bull (Jack Herrick), who he defeats. Barbara, meanwhile, is due to inherit a fortune, and Drexel Craig, a crooked lawyer (Sheldon Lewis), has made it appear that she must marry Reginald Chicester (Douglas Gerrard) to get the money. Craig's plot is foiled when Barbara marries Perry instead.
