From all outward appearances, Harvey Deering (John Gilbert) is a fine, upstanding young citizen, and thus his father Lemuel (Frank Keenan) has no reservations about inviting Harvey to join the family business. Unfortunately, no sooner has Harvey launched his career than he begins mounting exorbitant expenses -- and when Lemuel confronts the boy, Harvey can offer no explanation for his uncharacteristic behavior. Only in the last reel is it revealed that Harvey's name has been forged on a series of "bum checks" by his old college roommate Harold Morrowtown (Jack Rollins), a fact that Harvey is honor-bound not to reveal. Eventually, however, everything is straightened out, and Harvey is back in the good graces of his father. More Trouble was written for the screen by Ouida Bergere, who later became the wife of actor Basil Rathbone.
