Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Most of the late-1920s George Walsh vehicles were directed by "B"-picture specialist Bernard McEveety, and Inspiration was no exception. The plot concentrates on ascertaining the parentage of an illegitimate child. Falsely accused of being the daddy, wealthy Walsh is ostracized from polite New York society. He heads for Port Said and a life of drunken depravity, until he is rescued by native dancer Gladys Frazin. Armed with a new reason for living, Walsh cleans himself up and returns to New York to face down his unforgiving accusers.
