Fans of silent screen star King Baggott were not in the least bothered by the fact that his was a shade too old to play the callow leading character in The Suburban. Upon marrying against his father's wishes, wealthy young Don Gordon (Baggott) is immediately disinherited. Intending to prove that he can stand on his own two feet, Gordon heads to the South Seas in hopes of finding his fortune. Instead, he is shanghaied by a stern sea captain, then later shipwrecked on a desert island. Returning home after two years, Gordon almost immediately gets back into his father's good graces by proving that the Gordon Sr.'s most trusted business associate is really a two-timing scoundrel. With King Baggott in the lead, who needed a coherent storyline?
