In Lewis's very own special version of the American dream career, “Rags to riches”, the successful production company “Paramutual Pictures” hires the clumsy placarder Marty S. Tashman as an internal spy. Marty’s talent to cause chaos and devastation, leads logically to his dismissal, but also to his subsequent discovery as a natural talent of comedy. In the last shot he helps the new hired and also clumsy placarder.
