There he buys a barrel factory and falls in love with Irene Lee (Toby Wing), the snobbish niece of crusty old Morton Ross (Tully Marshall), the town’s only rich man and owner of the closed canneries. Oleander Tubbs (Helen Chandler) and her inventor father Angus (Spencer Charters), who sold Oliver the factory, tell him it has no future but he disagrees and says he will have everything booming again. Oleander thinks he is daffy but she and her father agree to help him. Angus invents a collapsible barrel and Oliver, seeing fame and fortune just ahead, spends all of his money just keeping the factory going. Oliver persuades old man Ross to re-open the canneries and to use the ground-breaking barrels and things appear to be going okay, until Dennis Andrews (Walter Byron), Ross’ slick attorney, tries to doubel-cross both Ross and Oliver by bilking Angus out of the patent rights to the barrel.
