~Plot Synopsis~
Ambitious Bill Henry Jenkins (Charles Ray) leaves the fields of southern Alabama to become a traveling
salesman on bicycle selling electric vibrators. After ruining his bicycle running from a dissatisfied
customer, he goes to his uncle's (Bert Woodruff) hotel in Jessup. He becomes the desk clerk after
meeting beautiful Lela Mason (Edith Roberts), newly arrived from Iowa to take over an inherited farm.
When she finds that the land is a worthless swamp, Bill wins $300 in a poker game and secretly buys it
from her. A speculator discovers the land has oil in it and pays Bill $1400 which Bill gives to Lela's
agent, Burton Rogers (William A. Carroll), to give to her. Rogers keeps the money and, trying to seduce
Lela, tells her that Bill bought her land cheap knowing he could then sell it for a great profit. Lela
believes Bill, who, buoyed by her faith in him, attacks Rogers with his vibrator. The latter confesses and
gives back the money.
