Bennett is rapidly approaching 50 and none too happy about it. He meets youngster Kenyon and romance develops. But Bennett's old friend McWade thinks Kenyon is a gold digger after the groom's riches and does his best to break up the romance. The film is slow to start and some scenes run a

little long, but it does have a certain historical value. It was one of the best technical achievements in the early stages of talkies, using the dialog to carry the story instead of employing it as a gimmick. THE HOME TOWNERS is based on a successful play by famed showman George M. Cohan, and was

remade in 1940 as LADIES MUST LIVE.
