Storyline

It was during a wild night of dissipation by the reveler that the derelict, drifting down the street begging, approaches him. The reveler refuses him money, but insists that he go into the banquet hall and have a drink. The derelict is dragged up to the large table. His pitiable condition and the fact that he refuses to drink to furnish amusement for the congregation. One of the crowd suggests that he tell a story in payment for the repast. The derelict tells the story of his life. He is introduced as a young man, leaving his home in the country to visit a wealthy uncle in the city. Upon his arrival his uncle finds him a good position in a counting house. His fellows in the counting house teach him to drink. He neglects his mother and his people, and his course continues downward until he receives word from his home that his mother is dying and that her last wish is to see him. He rushes home, but too late. The picture of the derelict's story fades out and the banquet hall fades in. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

This is a first-rate production
31 December 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Mr. Kerrigan plays his usual good lead in this drama, which begins with a rich man picking up a hobo, dragging him into a dining hall crowded with well-dressed people and demanding a story of him. In the story is driven home the point that a man must not forget his mother, his sisters and his sweetheart during his bachelor days. This is a first-rate production. - The Moving Picture World, November 15, 1913
