Rumor has it that the Forest City State Bank, one of the oldest and most conservative institutions in the country, is hard pressed for cash. The news spreads like wildfire and a run is imminent. Money has been wired for but the question of the moment is to quiet the frantic crowd until it arrives. Mr. Church, the president, faces ruin and disgrace if the run starts. Quite by chance, young Dick Thatcher, the cashier, and Dorothy Church, his fiancée, hit upon a novel idea to quell the panic. They secure a ferocious live lion and his tamer from the circus, which is in town, and when the doors of the bank are thrown open to the surging crowd, they forget all about their deposited money in a wild effort to get as far away from the bank as possible. The ensemble in this delightful comedy was composed of members of the Motion Picture Exhibitors' League of Illinois. Over two hundred of them acted in this unique production.
