Synopsis by Janiss Garza
Tom Moore stars in this light comedy. He is Tom O'Gara, who arrives in New York from Ireland and takes a job as a fireman (instead of the stereotypical policeman like most movie Irishmen of the silent era). One night, while fighting a fire, he saves Claudia Royce (Helene Chadwick), the daughter of a wealthy family. Claudia had been staying with a friend to avoid Loland (Herbert Prior), who wants to marry her. When she confesses that her parents are trying to force her into the marriage, O'Gara suggests that he marry her to keep the man away. She agrees, but O'Gara puts on a mock ceremony, figuring that Claudia will want to have the marriage annulled anyway. O'Gara winds up inventing an appliance that becomes a success, and he and Claudia never forget each other. Eventually they decide to make their union legal. An interesting side note -- Renée Adorée, a few years off from stardom, plays Moore's sister. In real life, she had recently become his bride.
