Storyline

Young Kenneth Jamieson's millionaire father, fed up with his son's wild escapades, sends him to stay on a chicken farm in the small village of Dedham. On the day he arrives there pretty Diane Lee, the niece of local Rev. David Lee, arrives from Paris. A few days later Kenneth, reverting back to his wild ways, gets drunk and makes a spectacle of himself, but rather than reproving him, Rev. Lee gives him a heart-to-heart talk and gets Kenneth to turn his life around. Meanwhile, the reverend--barely able to get by on the pittance the local vestrymen pay him--asks for a raise but is denied it, being told that he must send Diane away before they'll even consider giving him any extra money. Soon afterward Kenneth falls gravely ill. His father, hearing of Kenneth's condition and of his infatuation with Diane, arrives at the village to see his son and isn't ready for what he finds.

A Sad Loss For Silent Cinema
4 August 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After a series of wild escapades, Kenneth Jamieson ( George O'Brien ) is sent by his irate millionaire father ( George Fawcett ) to stay on a chicken farm in the little village of Dedham. On the same day, Diane Lee ( Jacqueline Logan ), the niece of the Reverend David Lee ( Alec B. Francis ), arrives from Paris, sporting French manners and the latest Parisian clothes. A few days later, Kenneth gets drunk and makes a fool of himself, but David speaks to him and shows him the error of his ways. Grossly underpaid, David asks the vestrymen for a raise. They refuse it to him, claiming that he is deserving of nothing until he sends Diane away. Kenneth's father learns of his son's infatuation with Diane and comes to Dedham, expecting to find a gold digger. He is quickly won over by the girl, particularly after she nurses Kenneth back to health when he becomes ill. The elder Jamieson, angered by the hypocrisy of the vestrymen, gives them a piece of his mind. David receives his deserved raise, and Kenneth and Diane become engaged.

This 1925 silent comedy/drama was based on a 1921 Broadway play, Thank You, by Winchell Smith and Tom Cushing. The film was produced by the Fox Film Corporation and directed by John Ford, starring George O'Brien, Jacqueline Logan and Alec B. Francis. Sadly, this film now remains a lost silent.
