Synopsis by Hal Erickson
William Fairbanks may not have been the best "B"-picture actor in Hollywood, but he was certainly one of the busiest. In One Chance in a Million, Fairbanks plays Secret Service agent Jerry Blaine. Hot on the trail of a gang of jewel thieves, Jerry briefly poses as a crook himself to gain the gang's confidence. Before the final reel has expended itself, our hero has prevented a big-time heist and has prevented millionaire's daughter Ruth Torrence (Viora Daniels) from marrying one of the criminals. Cadaverous comedian Eddie Borden provides laughs as the wimpish Horace Featherby.
