Alla Nazimova, an ethereal Russian actress who preferred to bill herself as just plain Nazimova, tops the cast of My Son. The "son" in this instance is Portuguese youth Jack Pickford, who lives and works in a New England fishing town with his devoted mother (Nazimova). Pickford courts disaster when he falls for a gorgeous adventuress (Constance Bennett). His mother and his sweetheart (Mary Akin) despair over Pickford's outrageous behavior, and for a while it looks as though he'll never wise up. My Son was adapted from the stage play by Martha M. Stanley.
