An amusing picture which was shot at the brand new Ince Studios in Culver City, future home of MGM. William Desmond plays Horace Lee, a screenwriter wannabe who manages to sneak himself, and his photoplay, onto the aforementioned studio premises. He finds an open but empty executive office and plays a little game of casting his script by pulling the appropriate star's pictures off the wall (it's no coincidence they're all Ince actors). Then he finds out he has been locked in, and while waiting for the night watchman to let him out, he falls asleep. His scenario comes to life in his dream, populated by the stars he had picked from the wall.
