Richard Sutton pretends to have inherited a fortune so that he can refuse an unsavory job offer. Hearing of these new riches, women flock around Richard, who accidentally becomes engaged to several of them while his real fiancée departs in disgust. Matters get worse with the arrival of a gangster and a 'deceased' uncle. (Maurice Trace)

Notes:
  1. Charles Hutchison had been an action hero in the silents, renowned for daring
      stunts and known as "Daredevil Hutch" or "Hurricane Hutch". He became a director 
      and screenwriter in the sound era, but often also played bit parts - here
      Charles is a waiter who is required to do a pratfall when the hero crashes
      into him. Alas this short section is cut from the 9.5mm print.

  2. Also missing from the 9.5mm print is a section in the middle of the feature
      when Richard goes on a 'bender' around numerous bars and night clubs.
  3. The film is also known as "Girl Trouble" and "Man Trap".
