The leading character in this one-reel Gaumont comedy is a gambler, who wishes to reform his prodigal ways. The "bank" in question is of the piggy variety, purchased by the hero so that he might salt away his savings, thereby resisting temptation. But after a year of frugality, the poor fellow succumbs to the lure of the gaming tables and tries to break open his bank. Alas, the bank is thoroughly unbreakable, even when dropped from the Eiffel Tower! Finally, the hero resorts to dynamite, only to be arrested by the gendarmes as an "anarchist."
