STORY SYNOPSIS:
Jimmy O'Connor, employed in a gambling establishment, is so honest that he is offered a banking job at any time; and for his sake, Scotty, his protege and pal, decides to go straight. The boys go fifty-fifty in everything until SCotty falls in love with Diana, who operates a shooting booth at Coney Island. Jimmy declares that he disapproves of all women- except his mother - and Scotty despairs until he schemes to have Jimmy meet Jeanne, Diana's girl friend. It is only when they expect to be killed in an airplane crash that Jimmy tells Jeanne he loves her, but later he feigns indifference. Jeanne is heartbroken; Scotty explains that he can't marry Diana until Jimmy is safely engaged; and with that both boys are reconciled to their respective sweethearts.
