Similar to 'A Feather in Her Cap' or 'Stella Dallas'
Ruth Chatterton, a poor, low-life mother who can barely make ends meet, is married to a no-good jerk, Fueller Mullish Jr. When Fueller steals their infant son and sells him to a rich family, Ruth is heartbroken. She contacts a high-class lawyer, Fredric March, to help get her boy back, but he's already settled in his new home.
It actually takes a long time for the plot to unfold, so if you decide to watch this, you'll be looking at your watch wondering when Fredric March is going to show up. Unless you love silent movies or very early talkies, you probably won't make it through this one. It hasn't been remastered, so the sound quality is poor and the film looks like it's on the verge of overexposure. The actors talk in a very stylized manner, over-pronouncing things and having very obvious facial expressions. Also, Ruth talks in a very strong accent and it's tough to understand her at times. I'd recommend sticking with A Feather in Her Cap and Stella Dallas if you like these types of stories.
