Synopsis

Willie Musher, assistant window-trimmer and jack-of-all-trades at Tracy's Department Store, consistently shoulders the blame for patrons who deem themselves aggrieved and one day is awarded a $10 bill. On his way to the bank, he stops to examine a car that is campaigning for funds for an orphans' home; he holds his bank book in such a way that Mary, a nurse, takes the bill and leaves him a receipt. Later, he is alarmed to learn he has obligated himself to support a baby, but taking an interest in Mary and little Oscar, he gets a job as waiter in a nightclub to support the child. To Willie's chagrin, he learns that Vanderman, Sr., wants to adopt Oscar, apparently the offspring of his son, Harvey. Willie dreams of hair-raising stunts to kidnap Oscar; finding that he has been promoted, he proves that Oscar is not Vanderman's grandson, adopts the boy, and asks Mary to marry him.
