Synopsis

Monte Brewster's inheritance of his Grandfather Brewster's $2 million provokes his Grandfather Ingraham to promise Monte $10 million if he can spend his inheritance in one year and remain unmarried. Monte does his best, but he seems to grow wealthier with each spendthrift scheme, and his friends--especially Peggy Gray--secretly save and invest the money they are supposed to help him spend. A disastrous yachting cruise to Peru finally does the trick. Monte is broke, but he has married Peggy, so neither grandfather is satisfied until the salvaged yacht brings Monte a large sum and Peggy's investment in a Peruvian silver mine proves lucrative.
