Based on a true story, All the World to Nothing stars William Russell as an honest young stockbroker. Spiritually seduced by Wall Street swindlers, Russell faces ruination and disgrace. By setting aside his own dreams of wealth, our hero is able to redeem himself. Screenwriter Stephen Fox adapted the film from an a clef novel by Wyndham Martyn. All the World to Nothing was directed by Henry King, who even at this early stage of his career was eliciting non-"stagey" performances from his actors.
