Only Saps Work
Cast & Crew
Lawrence Payne becomes innocently and unknowingly involved in a bank robbery when he offers to drive his boardinghouse mate, James Wilson--a quick-fingered, glib-tongued crook--to the train station. Both board the train and make their way to a health resort where Larry has obtained a job as pantry boy; en route, Larry meets Barbara Tanner, who is taking her father to the resort, and Horace Baldwin, her languid boyfriend. At the resort, Jim convinces the doctors he is a detective working on the crime he has himself committed; and Oscar, a bellboy ambitious to become a detective, volunteers to help him by shadowing Barbara's father and Baldwin. Meanwhile, Jim, who has represented himself as the resort owner, goes through numerous subterfuges in hiding from Barbara. Learning that Jim has robbed a bank, Lawrence insists on his returning the money, but at this juncture two detectives enter and there is a wild chase. Two bonafide officials expose the sleuths as crooks, and they in turn expose Jim. Larry is absolved of his escapades and finds happiness with Barbara.
