Storyline

Rare Paramount film, supposedly lost save for a partial nitrate, is typical boy chases girl film. Set in London, American Larry Brooks, former millionaire and now broke, pursues lovely Elinor Farrington who, encouraged by her Aunt to marry wealth, falls for him not knowing that he is poor. Trying to regain his status in the racing world since the loss of his champion racehorse and the efforts of a gangster left him penniless, he and his trainer live from hand to mouth as he tries desperately to woo the girl, despite her aunt's suspicions. But Elinor soon finds herself falling for him until he admits to all that he is not what he appears to be. Through the efforts of a number of colorful characters, most notably a heavy set Spanish lady and her friend Senor Cortes, he is given the chance to vindicate himself in the big cross country race and start himself on the road to fortune with his girlfriend.

Not a lost film
1 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This supposedly "lost film" is definitely not lost, although sources say only a partial nitrate print exists in the UCLA archives. Charles "Buddy" Rogers stars as a young American in London. Once a millionaire, he's lost everything due to losing his racehorse and the efforts of a gangster. Working as a waiter, he falls for a lovely young girl who's aunt wants her to marry wealth (as they are down to "enough for just one more season"). Then it's boy chases girl as he tries to get a riding job for the big cross country race. The film also benefits from a nice performance by Frances Dee, a lovely actress who graced some early Paramount treasures. Bob Connors
