Storyline

In 1919, Chester Binney, a wounded World War I veteran, is discharged from the U.S. Army in Los Angeles, and returns to his hometown. There he is feted by his pre-war employer, George Simmons, who hopes to strike up a romance between his daughter, Ethel, and Chester. However, for social reasons, Chester's accomplishments-line is a bit "thin," so George builds him a hectic past that involves movie-vamp Rita Ralti. This is news to Rita and her manager, who have come to town to promote her latest film. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
