Munich-born stunt-man extraordinaire Richard Talmadge continued his low-budget exploits for producer Phil Goldstone with Putting It Over. Young politico Bob Merrill (Talmadge) is up against the powerful Arnold Norton (Thomas Ricketts) in the race for mayor. The campaign comes to a screetching halt, however, when Bob falls in love with his opponent's daughter (Doris Pawn) and learns that his own father's henchman (Harry van Meter) is behind a series of sabotages targeting Norton. Switching to the other side, Bob successfully works for Norton's victory. A popular Fox star of the early 1910s, Doris Pawn was nearing the end of her screen career when she appeared opposite Talmadge in this low-grade programmer. She left films altogether in 1923.
