Cast & Crew
Henry Baxter, a shy, backward clerk in the circulation department of a big city newspaper, constantly dreams of doing heroic things and falls in love with Beulah Dyer, a pretty stenographer. Henry saves up enough money to ask her to marry him, but when his brother dies unexpectedly, Henry finds himself responsible for his sister-in-law and her two children. Henry suggests to Walter Higgins, his superior on the paper, that a series of banquets-for-heroes be instituted under the auspices of the newspaper as a means of boosting circulation; the suggestion is accepted by the management, but Higgins takes all of the credit for it. Henry breaks down from overwork, and the managing editor of the paper learns from Beulah of Henry's devotion to his sister-in-law. Falk gives a hero's banquet for Henry, but during the proceedings Henry is informed that his house is on fire. He rushes there in time to save the two children from the flames, winning a promotion and Beulah's hand in marriage.
