Synopsis by Hal Erickson
He may have been Maurice B. Flynn on the studio payroll, but to his fans this popular action star was best known as "Lefty" Flynn. In Smilin' at Trouble, Lefty plays Jerry Foster a construction engineer working on a big-time dam project. Our hero gets wind of a plan cooked up by his foreman to sabotage the dam for fun and profit. The finale is a fairly convincing dam-burst sequence, in which Jerry rescues boss' daughter Alice Arnold (Helen Lynch) while the treacherous foreman meets a soggy demise. In Great Britain, the film was more formally shipped out as Smiling at Trouble.
