Cast & Crew
Emmett J. Flynn
The very wealthy and very idle Dickey Derrickson is scorned by his fiancée Madge Earle because of his refusal to work. To counter her criticism, he buys a detective agency that has no cases, but Madge discovers the ruse. To create a demand for his services, Dickey hires a group of thugs to steal valuables from his rich friends. Meanwhile, when old friend Tom Burroughs, who is engaged to Dick's sister Dot, appeals to Dick to retrieve some love letters that he had written to vamp Viola Devore, Dick goes into action. He secures the letters, but for revenge, Viola kidnaps Tom. Dickey tries to rescue his chum and recovers all the wedding presents stolen by his crooks, thus convincing Madge that he can be serviceable after all.
