Additional Info

The cabins at Paradise Glen where Wally stops to use the phone are run down. He sees Ellen, the owner's daughter, and embarks on a campaign to put the place back on its feet. There have already been weddings at the glen, so Wally advertises romance in a big way. Women flock but men are scarce and Wally's efforts to get people to marry for publicity purposes prove disastrous, especially when he promotes a match between the daughter of the banker who holds the mortgage and a hobo. There are also two Boston librarians who take up Hula dancing, a sailor who has too many girls, his jealous fiancee who nearly wrecks the place, an out spoken nurse, a hired man who isn't a hired man, and Ellen's scatter brained mother who is an old flame of the banker's.
