As corny as its Horatio Alger title, Striving for Fortune cast two-fisted action star George Walsh as Tom Sheridan. A minor employee of a major steamship company, Tom hopes to make a success of his life but is thwarted at every turn by a treacherous flunkey from another shipping firm. The villain's perfidy reaches its apex when he sabotages the revolutionary new ship developed by Tom's company. With pluck, luck, and lots of muscle, Tom saves the ship, routs the villain, and lands a big promotion. Oh, yes: he also gets the girl ($Beryl Roberts).
