Cast & Crew
Sam Smith is engaged to the village belle until he is accused of stealing by J. Wellington Jones and is driven from town. Chance leads him to a film studio in Los Angeles, where, in desperation, he stands in for an actor who declines to jump off a bridge. Becoming a success as a result, he returns to the town rich and famous but finds himself jailed and threatened with lynching. A confession by the heroine's father finally frees him, and he becomes the "small town idol."
