The Professor dispenses the wisdom of the ages and does not make a living wage. The sons of the rich and powerful are students lacking any motivation. The next door neighbor of the Professor, businessman Olsen, has money and lots of food, while the Griggs have hardly any. Both Peter Olsen and Reverend Gates are taken by the beauty of young Amelia Griggs. When rich son Phil West falls for Amelia Griggs and befriends the poor Reverend Gates, he finally sees the difference in his life and theirs and tries to do something to change that. Written by

THE BLOT is a surprisingly well made film for being so little known. Well shot, with fine composition and lighting, it features an excellent cast; and it is interesting to see a YOUNG Louis Calhern. The ending is undecided, and may reflect the director's being a woman. The professor's daughter has two sutors, one rich, the other poor, and both are equally suitable. The final shot shows her saying farewell to both, and sitting quietly on her front porch. Her choice and her fate are both unresolved, and we are left (seemingly) to make the choice ourselves.
