Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Apparently filmed at the same time as the 1927 George Walsh vehicle His Rise to Fame, Broadway Drifter casts Walsh as the son of a prominent airplane manufacturer. Framed for theft by his crooked uncle, Walsh inexplicably refuses to defend himself and as a result is thrown out of his father's house. After several months of wandering aimlessly about, our hero is afforded the opportunity to clear his name and expose his uncle as a fraud.
