Previous films based on the "Skinner" stories of Henry Irving Dodge had starred such silent-film luminaries as Reginald Denny and Bryant Washburn. The leading role in the all-talkie Skinner Steps Out was Glenn Tryon, who'd proven his skill with dialogue in the Universal superspectacular Broadway. This time around, junior executive William Henry Skinner (Tryon) is goaded into improving his lot in life by his ambitious wife Honey (Merna Kennedy). Hoping to impress an influential businessman, Skinner tries too hard and messes things up. But all turns out for the best when our hero comes up with a brilliant scheme which saves his company from ruin.
