Cast & Crew
Clarence H. Geldart
When shipping clerk Arthur McArney falls in love with pretty stenographer Elsa Owenson, he finds himself in stiff competition with a fat but wealthy broker named Sankey. Elsa's expensive tastes lead Arthur to spend a week's salary on an evening's entertainment, part with his watch to pay their cab fare and borrow money from his friends to buy her extravagant gifts. Finally, Arthur is forced to take on odd jobs and night duty, which so impresses his employer Hallette that he gives the clerk a small raise. After Arthur spends $200 on the proper attire to wear to a lavish Halloween party, Hallette calls him to the office at the last moment, and Elsa attends the affair with Sankey. To reward his employee's dedication, however, Hallette appoints Arthur to the post of branch manager. Upon accepting Arthur's marriage proposal, Elsa resolves henceforth to economize.
