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.
