Herbert Littell Dodsworth ( Edmund Lowe ), the wealthy son of a small town's leading family, returns home and attempts to prove his manhood. At first he fails at everything, an address to the Royal Order of Woodchucks ends in comic disaster, and he falls overboard while fishing for tuna. Herbert falls in love with Lettie Ewing ( Lois Moran ), a waitress in a tea room, however, and finally proves himself to be as good a man as any of his successful ancestors.
This 1929 comedy was based from the short story "Making the Grade" by George Ade. Produced by the Fox Film Corporation, it was released as a silent film with talking sequences, synchronized music and sound effects. Starring Edmund Lowe and Lois Moran, this film's survival status is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be lost.
