While this two-reeler features some of the more dependable players from Mack Sennett's late-'20s period, it never rises far above average. Andy Clyde and Vernon Dent play a pair of shady real estate operators who are so down on their luck that they have to steal sandwiches out of lunch boxes. They manage to come up with a winning scheme, however -- they use beautiful music to back up their overblown sales pitches. This ploy works so well that a sentimental young woman (Madeline Hurlock) buys a three-thousand-dollar bungalow for twenty grand. Office boy Eddie Quillan is incensed at the way that Madeline has been tricked. As a result, he gives up his job and marries her so that he can live in the bungalow with her. Clyde and Dent discover that they're the ones out of luck when the property gushes oil -- just as Eddie and Madeline become proud parents.
