A typically stunt-driven Richard Talmadge vehicle, The Wall Street Whiz presented Talmadge in the title-role, a broker who is mistaken for an unemployed butler by the rich Lillian Langdon. In love with the lady's pretty daughter, Peggy (Marceline Day), Talmadge keeps up the charade, foiling along the way an attempt by nefarious Carl Miller to ruin Peggy's father (Dan Mason). Talmadge, who also produced, had once worked as stunt-double for Douglas Fairbanks, whose breezy screen presence he attempted to duplicate. Talmadge's real-life brother, Alfred Metzetti, worked as an assistant director in many of his films, including The Wall Street Whiz.
