Try and Get It was certainly a better title than that of the Saturday Evening Post story on which it was based, called The Ringtailed Galliwampus. Timothy Perrin (Lionel Belmore) is an ill-tempered cement manufacturer who also owns a women's lingerie shop. He owes on a bill and both Joseph Merrill (Bryant Washburn) and Glenn Collins (Edward Everett Horton) are sent to either collect the money due or lose their jobs. Complicating matters is the fact that both men are in love with Perrin's daughter, Rhoda (Billie Dove). Neither of the bill collectors have any luck at the cement yard -- they're both bodily thrown out. Then Merrill decides to try the shop. He gets beaten up there. Finally he solves his dilemma by teaming up with Rhoda. With her help he is able to collect from Perrin. In addition to keeping his job, he wins Rhoda's heart.
