Henpecked bank clerk Wakefield is given a rather unusual choice: go to jail for three months in order to collect an inheritance, or marry his girl (Beaumont) who doesn't want to postpone marriage for that long. Wakefield opts for the money and deliberately messes up a burglary so he can

land in jail and thus collect the fortune. His cellmate forces the poor man to participate in a jailbreak, so that Beaumont is pacified by not having to wait for her nuptials after all as Wakefield marries her before he returns to jail. It's not much of an idea, and the results are a series of

poorly constructed comic mishaps. Direction shows no flair for comedy.
