As described in a film magazine review,[4] Myra Gaylord, an orphan with two million dollars, is seeking adventure one day and throws one half of a $100 bill out of a window, offering the other half if a person finding it comes to her apartment. Coal heaver Mike Smagg finds that half of the bill with a note attached promising the other half and giving the address of the apartment. When he arrives with one half, Myra decides to groom him and introduce him into society. His caveman methods attract the women. He balks at obeying Myra, who tells him that society will ostracize him if his background and identity become known. He doubts this, but discovers that it is true, and is forced to forego his top hat and suit and don the heavy clothes of a coal heaver. Eventually, after going back to his old haunts, he returns, kidnaps Myra, and rushes her away on a coal wagon to be married.



The Caveman survives in the Library of Congress with a reel missing.[5]
