* ActingForTwo: But credited with one (Henry Beckman plays two distinctly different characters in the controlled Governor Bradford and nervous Sam Jamison, but the end credits only list him as playing the former for some reason).


Added DiffLines:

With the complicity of his beautiful secretary, Miss Piecemeal, Governor Bradford is secretly abducted and replaced with a double. Unbeknownest to the conspirators, however, the governor had previously become suspicious and dispatched a letter to President Grant, who in turn sends West and Gordon to investigate. Miss Piecemeal and the imposter, who is growing increasingly nervous, attempt to dispose of the agents without arousing their suspicions, while the brains behind the operation continues with his plans to bleed the state treasury dry... all in the name of art.
