Ellis plays a department store owner who built his business up from the ashes of the Chicago Fire, only to find that none of his children wants to take over the operation. He is heartbroken and tries every way he can to convince them, finally handing out shares of the company stock but

with only the youngest son taking heed. When this was originally filmed in 1933 as SWEEPINGS, Lionel Barrymore starred in the Ellis role. Gargan, who plays Ellis' brother in THREE SONS, portrayed one of the sons in the earlier version. Vale and Stanton made their entree into the movies via Jesse

L. Lasky's broadcast talent search, "Gateway to Hollywood," and Stanton gets a chance to exercise his singing voice in this film on "Tootin' Down to Tennessee."
