Wheeler Dryden, the half-brother of Charles Chaplin, was the only "name" performer in this obscure silent melodrama, which premiered in a minor theater in Brooklyn in May of 1921. Leaving the seminary for the love of pretty Marion Carroll (Audrey Chapman), Fred Bentley (Sheldon Smith) finds himself replaced in her affection by Richard Lane, his own roommate (Dryden). In desperation, our fallen hero plans to poison both the girl and her new beau but comes to his sense in the nick of time. Returning to the seminary, Fred later performs the ceremony at Marion's and Richard's wedding.
