Cast & Crew
When his sweetheart, Mary Kelly, insists that he must grow a moustache before she will marry him, John Hart, a plodding bank clerk, becomes so distracted that he ends up short in his accounts. He is fired and, unable to land another job, becomes an extra in the movies. In a fit of temperament, the leading man in a major production refuses to work, and the film's director, in a fit of conceit, decides to prove that he can choose any poor slob to replace the leading man. He picks John. John turns out to be a natural and soon finds himself a star, completely at the mercy of the publicity hacks, who put him through seven marriages in as many weeks, each terminating after the wedding night. John soon tires of his frenetic life, runs away, and marries Mary Kelly. They retire to a farm; and despite the pleas of motion picture magnates, John remains there with Mary and the cows.
