Comic Chester Conklin stars in this sparkling comedy directed by Allan Dwan. John Sloval (Conklin), a New York City transit security officer, would love to see his daughter Sophie (Alice White) marry Philip Hurd (Sam Hardy), who works at a Coney Island concession stand. But Sophie is in love with Bill Hedges (Jack Egan), the son of an upstate New York dairy farmer. Sloval makes a deal for Philip to marry Sophie in exchange for a percentage of Philip's Coney Island concession-stand take. But then Sloval falls off a subway platform and is nearly killed. Sloval's money-making scheme is forgotten as a local newspaper and a political candidate make hay of Sloval's plight in order to push for subway reform. By the time Sloval realizes that he is being exploited by the newspaper for political ends, Sophie and Bill have married. Dejected, Sloval goes to visit them, hoping that they will forgive him.
