Synopsis by Janiss Garza
Harold Chester Winthrop Gordon (J. Warren Kerrigan) wakes up one afternoon to discover that because of his spendthrift ways, his father has cut him off, his fiancee's father has forbidden him to come around, and his club wants his resignation. As a result, he is forced to do something he's never before considered -- work. So he heads out West with a friend, but they don't get any farther than a New Jersey farm. Gordon, nevertheless, gets down to the hard labor and discovers that he actually likes it. So he and his friend decide to start a farm that turns the wastrel sons of wealthy men into worthwhile human beings. This venture is hugely successful, and when America enters the Great War, Gordon and his charges get in line to serve their country. This picture sports two bit players who later became stars -- John Gilbert and Leatrice Joy. The two met on the set of this picture and a few years later became husband and wife...at least for a while.
