Abstract:
Bertie Van Alstyne, the spoiled son of a powerful Wall Street financier, tries to escape the wealth and comfort that is foisted upon him. He pursues individuality in a series of comic misadventures in the speakeasies of New York, the altar of matrimony and the floor of the American stock exchange. The high sign: Buster is unwittingly involved in a radical secret society known as the Blinking Buzzards, stumbling from assassin to bodyguard in a romantic misadventure. One week: dreams of placid domesticity are systematically demolished in the story of a couple's determination to build a prefabricated honemoon cottage.
