Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The minor-league Thumbs Down stars Creighton Hale as Richard Hale, a carefree socialite who falls in love with stenographer Helen Stanton (Lois Boyd). Despite the objections of his wealthy mother (Vera Lewis), Richard insists upon marrying Helen. Unable to accept her new daughter-in-law, Richard's mother sets about to ruin the girl in her son's eyes. Seizing upon the fact that Helen has been paying clandestine visits to a mysterious man, Richard's mom insists that the girl is having an affair. Richard is inclined to believe his mom until the very last moment, when it is revealed that Helen's supposed lover is actually a detective who is endeavoring to secure a release for Helen's falsely imprisoned father (Scott Seaton).
