  • A two-part picture. Two get-rich-quick financiers of the Wallingford type decide to form a fake oil company. They settle at Santa Maria, California. Widow Green of Santa Maria invests her husband's insurance money in the fake oil company and soon after her son Eben goes to work on the oil drills. He falls in love with Marjorie, daughter of Stubbs, the head driller. Stubbs strikes oil, but for a money consideration agrees to keep the fact from the shareholders, who, ignorant of the strike, will sell for the amount of the assessment. Eben learns of the strike and by a ruse buys the assessment and gets control of the company. Sydney Ayres and Vivian Rich play the leads. - The Moving Picture World, April 25, 1914
