"Rosie Cooper ( Gladys Walton ) is cashier in a cheap restaurant and among those she favours is ...Freddie Smith ( David Butler ), the bakery boy. Rose is a 'wise kid' all right, but it takes her some time to see through a shiny young thin model gent ... . The girl entertains his advances because he means romance to her. But he proves his shallow character and Rosie is glad to turn to Freddie, the bakery youth." ( Motion Picture News Booking Guide, Oct 1922.)
This 1922 silent comedy/romance was directed by Tod Browning and produced by The Universal Film Manufacturing Company, starring the beautiful stage and silent screen actress, Gladys Walton. Sadly, not much information survives for The Wise Kid, a lost film, other than a few film stills and lobby cards, fans of silent cinema can only hope a copy survives and resurfaces for public viewing and a proper review.
