Synopsis by Janiss Garza
This comedy-melodrama made a poor vehicle for William Russell, even though he had a dual role. Jimmy Gallop, who sells fire extinguishers, is the exact double of Judge Granger, who is running for mayor (both are played by Russell). Even the Judge's girlfriend, Miss Sayre (Renee Adoree), mistakes Gallop for her sweetheart. Because of the resemblance, Gallop is kidnapped by Granger's political enemies, who want to ruin his chances of being elected. In the midst of all these goings-on, the judge has been trying to get Miss Sayre to marry him. While Gallop is posing as the judge, she writes to accept his proposal. Gallop finally comes clean about the impersonation, the judge wins the election and his opponents are defeated. Miss Sayre, meanwhile, has decided she likes Gallop better than her original sweetheart, and she decides to marry him instead.
