Based on a story which originally appeared in the pages of Liberty magazine, Prince of Headwaiters stars Lewis Stone as the title character. The maƮtre d' at Paris' Ritz Hotel, Pierre (Stone) had once been married to a wealthy aristocrat, but their union was rent asunder at the command of his wife's snobbish relatives. Years later, Pierre discovers that his marriage had produced a son, the now-grown-up Elliot Cable (Robert Agnew). Without revealing his true identity, Pierre saves Elliot from falling into the clutches of infamous blackmailer Mae Morin (Lilyan Tashman). No one suffered more nobly in evening clothes than the estimable Lewis Stone.
