Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
Jack Newberry (E.K. Lincoln) is the millionaire's son who tries to become a Hollywood filmmaker in this melodrama. His father advances him $40,000 to make the picture with the understanding the feature must make a profit. The feature takes several comic looks at the industry, with William Russell as dictatorial director Eric Von Greed, Tom Santschi as an eccentric inventor, and comic Chester Conklin as the cameraman. A romantic side plot finds Jack in love with Florence Keaton (Helen Ferguson), whose wealthy father (Edwards Davies) has reservations about his daughter's involvement with anything Hollywood.
