Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Hallam Cooley stars as a slick-haired slickster who comes to a small town to promote an oil well scam. So persuasive is Cooley that he not only manages to fleece the populace, but also wins over Neyna Farrell, the girl friend of down-to-earth engineering student Cullen Landis. This turns out to be a blessing in disguise for Landis, who discovers that Neyna's sister Eva Novak is his true love. As for Cooley, he is eventually exposed as a fraud by wise old bird Joseph Dowling. Costarring as "Mrs. Andrews" is May Wallace, later a regular of Hal Roach's Laurel & Hardy and Our Gang comedies.
