His son, Fred, is the apple of his father's eye and is an auto enthusiast. The widowed Rupp falls in love with a former aristocrat, Helen, now down on her luck and pawning her last heirloom. He proposes marriage and she accepts in order to save her ailing mother who needs a monetary influx to avoid death. Her former boyfriend, Platen, warns Helen against Rupp's intentions - he and Rupp are enemies, Rupp having caused his being fired for protecting a chorus girl against Rupp's unwanted advances. Meanwhile, Graf, a shyster, arranges purchase of a near bankrupt auto manufacturing firm, Phoenix, to Rupp's great advantage with practically no monetary recognition to Graf, who swears revenge.

The narrative of this film, "All for Money", is mangled. It's a melodrama at times, with some convoluted tragedy, and some scattered moments of comedy, as well. It's set in postwar German society, which is pointed out in the film, with some mention of reversal of fortunes, but any allusions to social commentary fall flat. In addition to being poorly constructed and dull, it's badly filmed, especially in respect to camera positioning, which wasn't helped by the poor quality of the print I saw. Emil Jannings, one of the best actors at the time, and who plays an idiotic beef magnate here, is the only plus. The best moments are when he's provided comic situations. But, that didn't make "All for Money" worthwhile. Not recommended.
