Cast & Crew
T. Roy Barnes
Jerry Warner falls in love with Edith Somers but cannot obtain her father's permission to marry her. Jerry is given $10,000 by his uncle, however, and makes a proposition to Edith's father: if Jerry can retain the money for 30 days, Edith's father will withdraw his objections to the marriage. Edith's father agrees. Jerry immediately invests half of the money in an apparently worthless stock and lends the other half to a friend. Desperate for money, Jerry then accepts the offer made by his friends, Beatrice and Christopher Skinner, that he act as the corespondent in a temporary divorce they must obtain in order to prevent Christopher's disinheritance. After numerous complications, the Skinners manage to stay married, and the value of Jerry's stock doubles, enabling him to claim Edith for his own.
