Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This low-budgeter was adapted from A Wise Son, a novel by Charles Sherman. Bryant Washburn plays wealthy wastrel Hal Whitney, who during a "slumming" party decides to adopt shabby old derelict Tim Payne (Alec B. Francis). Hal drunkenly invites Tim on a yachting excursion, only to forget all about the old man when he sobers up. Eventually, however, Hal takes a quick look at his parasitical society chums and realizes that Tim is the only true friend he has. Billed first, Estelle Taylor is given the unenviable task of playing one of the least sympathetic heroines in film history.
