Cast & Crew
During Speed Carr's auto trip from New York to Los Angeles, where he is to meet his uncle, the millionaire and banker John Ogden, Speed is robbed of all his possessions and thus arrives in Los Angeles dressed like a hobo. At the bank, Speed discovers that his uncle is out of town, and because of his appearance and lack of identification, Speed is unceremoniously ejected. Destitute, Speed secures a job as chauffeur to Effie McPherson, the bank president's daughter. Effie's father is anxious to locate Speed before Ogden returns, and when his arrival becomes imminent, McPherson persuades his daughter's chauffeur to pose as Speed. When Effie falls in love with her chauffeur, McPherson objects, but relents when he discovers that his future son-in-law is in actuality a millionaire.
