casks of brandy in the basement of a monastery. Waram is his boss and Elizabeth Taylor is the daughter who helps him overcome the allergy. The secondary story has to do with Johnson deciding between being a rich man's attorney or taking up the cudgel for the poor and oppressed. During this film

Taylor was being courted by Glenn Davis, famous footballer with West Point. Good supporting cast includes Leon Ames.
