After the Chicago fire Barrymore builds a department store that becomes a major business. He wants his sons to take over but each proves to be spoiled by wealth and his daughter is too much of a socialite to care. Finally he turns his empire over to Ratoff, the man who helped him start the

store. Despite Barrymore's usual good standards, this is a slow and stuffy film without much merit. The drama is sapped by an all-too-serious presentation that unintentionally draws sympathy for the children, who are presented as selfish. The film was remade by RKO again in 1939 under the title

THREE SONS.
