Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein

Two of the silent era's more forgotten comedians, pert Dorothy Devore and rotund Walter Hiers headlined this feature comedy from short-subject specialist Christie. Losing her job at the beauty parlor, Dorothy cons her way into a position at a newspaper where she is assigned to interview an eccentric collector (Tully Marshall). While being shown a rare and expensive bracelet, a bypassing monkey grabs the jewelry, and the remainder of the farce is one long chase up and down a skyscraper, with Dorothy as an ersatz Harold Lloyd.
