Cast & Crew
James W. Horne
Reggie Dillingham, a society clubman who has squandered all but $70,000 of his million-dollar inheritance from his father, is upbraided by his attorney, who bets Reggie that he cannot support himself for 6 months. Reggie hands over the remaining money to the attorney for investment and sets out to find a job. He fails at being a book agent and a motorcycle cop. When, however, he snaps a compromising picture of Clint Taggart, a political boss who likes chorus girls, Taggart makes Reggie the managing editor of a city newspaper to keep him quiet. Reggie immediately liberalizes the policy of the paper and falls in love with Mary Ryan, Taggart's secretary, with whose help he discovers that Taggart is mixed up with bootlegging. Reggie uses Taggart's own paper to expose this fact, and Taggart orders Reggie to resign. Reggie refuses, Taggart brings in a gang of thugs to throw him out, and Reggie resists with the help of the loyal staff of the paper. Reggie obtains documentary evidence of Taggart's criminal activities and holds him for the police. Mary and Reggie make plans to continue their relationship, and Reggie is informed by his lawyer that his money has been doubled by fortunate investments.
