Synopsis

When Señora Franklyn's car breaks down several miles outside the city, her haughty chauffeur is unable to repair it. She impatiently accepts the offer of a hobo, José Rolan, who assures her that he is a mechanic. After Rolan fixes the problem immediately, Señora Franklyn hires him as her new chauffeur, despite opposition from the rest of the family. Shaved, and with hair combed and shoes polished, Rolan no longer looks like a vagrant and more like a perfect gentleman capable of winning Blanca, the Franklyns' daughter. However, social class distinctions keep Rolan and Blanca apart. During a long weekend party at the Franklyn mansion, two bogus European counts infiltrate the ranks of the distinguished guests and plan to crack open the safe and steal the family's jewelry. Just as the thieves are about to strike, Rolan leaps into action and reveals that he is, in fact, an undercover detective. This also enables him to eliminate the only obstacle to his love for Blanca and he declares his love openly.
