The title character of this comedy-drama suggests that archetype of the Roaring Twenties -- a brash, ambitious, and likable young man. After serving in the World War, Bill Peck T. Roy Barnes becomes a lumber salesman for the firm belonging to Cappy Ricks (William Norris). Peck also becomes infatuated with Mary Skinner (Seena Owen), the daughter of one of his other bosses (Tom Lewis). The young go-getter is overconfident, to put it mildly -- he makes up business cards for himself before even getting hired, and he proposes to Mary by making up engraved announcements for their wedding. Ricks manages to bring his aggressive young employee down to earth by sending him on all sorts of impossible feats. The clincher is when he sends Peck out to obtain a blue vase by any means possible. After a lot of trouble, he gets it -- only to discover that it's worth about ten cents. Nevertheless, he proves himself at his job and wins Mary's hand.
