His Lucky Day
Reginald Denny starred in this comedy, a part-talkie about a zealous real-estate dealer in love with his client's daughter. Charles Blaydon (Denny) is eager to sell a fashionable suburban house to Weaver (Harvey Clarke), a wealthy art collector, mainly because he has fallen in love with Weaver's brunette daughter Kay (Lorayne DuVal). But there is a catch: In order to unload the mansion, Charles must also sell the neighboring property. Mistaking a gang of thieves for potential buyers, Charles invites them to dinner at the Weavers, where the gang proceeds to steal the valuable Weaver objets d'art. Old man Weaver, however, is delighted with his new "friends" and refuses to believe that they are thieves -- that is, until the gang leader (Eddie Phillips) kidnaps Kay, with Charles in hot pursuit.
