A simple, small-town optimist moves to the big city with hopes of establishing himself enough to send for his sweetheart and marrying her. After taking a job as a sales clerk in a department store, he starts sending his girlfriend expensive presents to convince her that he's made it. When she shows up in town, he pretends to be the general manager and must carry out a dangerous publicity stunt to earn enough money to keep his ruse going.
Restoration by Janus Films, Criterion and Harold Lloyd Entertainment. The film features a new score from Carl Davis.
