Synopsis

Jerry Willard, a clerk in a publishing house who is possessed of a massive inferiority complex, is fired from his job and, on the way out of the office, is mistaken for the boss, Watson, by Anne Rogers, the daughter of an author, who gives Jerry the manuscript of her father's latest book. Jerry reads this text--on how to succeed in business--and puts some of its ideas to work. He attempts to persuade Watson to publish the book and fails; undeterred, he then steals Watson's dress suit and addresses the Publishers' Convention, extolling the virtues of the Rogers book. The response is so enthusiastic that Watson not only decides to publish the book but takes Jerry into the firm as a junior partner. Jerry proposes to Anne and is accepted.
