Synopsis by Janiss Garza
Paramount's silent matinee idol Wallace Reid plays John Craig, a struggling young contractor who falls into a crooked business scheme. A trio of unsavory partners on the verge of dissolving their company have hired him for a job, assuming that he will fail -- but of course they don't realize that any character played by Reid is going to be loaded with fresh American ingenuity. He undertakes the project with all his brains and throws his brawn into the picture when it's needed too. Not only is Craig's undertaking massively successful, making far more money than anyone ever expected, he also lands a wealthy wife (Nina Byron).
