Having squandered his allowance, gay blade Tom Eggett (Reginald Denny) is given a second chance when he inherits his uncle's department store. If he can post a profit within three months, the store will be his forever; if not, it's back to the unemployment line. An aficionado of amusement parks, Tom transforms the store into a funfair for the masses, with roller-skating sales clerks, scantily clad female mannequins, and various and sundry games of chance. Store manager Cyrus Crabb (Lucien Littlefield), who aspires to Tom's job, tries his best to undermine our hero, but with the help of pretty secretary Grace Gordon (Blanche Mehaffey) Tom wins out at the end. Take It From Me was another winner from the stellar actor-director team of Reginald Denny and William A. Seiter.
