~Plot Synopsis~
Chuck McCarthy, an intrepid young ironworker, longs to become an actor, despite the protests of his
girl, Molly O'Connors, and his family. In dashing up the frame of a building to catch actress Bijou
Lamour's runaway pet monkey, he attracts the attention of the studio managers, who make him a
stunt man. For a time Charles is happy executing life-risking feats and strutting around in new
clothes, although the company laughs at him behind his back. When leading man Marmaduke X.
Caruthers refuses to perform a particularly dangerous stunt in a war film, Chuck doubles for him and
is seriously injured. The studio manager, who recognizes in the incident an opportunity to promote
his star, quickly wraps Marmaduke in bandages and sends him to the hospital, while Chuck is
secretly removed through the back door. The next day, the Filmcraft Company sends Chuck a check
for $1,000 to keep quiet about the accident. He and Molly use the money on their honeymoon to
Niagara Falls.
