A poor boy's rise and the girl friend he almost loses when she sacrifices her love so he can mix with high society.
Basically a standard Hollywood production of the time, more Hollywood than New York despite some nice location shooting. A few scenes are of interest, especially shots of the New York waterfront from a boat, a collapse at a subway construction site, and scenes on a sinking ocean liner. Some may also be interested in the miniature work used for the sinking of the ocean liner and of a barge, but this was done better later.
