Pampered by permissive parents, wild Prohibition-era youth Albertson sponges sawbucks from his jewelry store-owning father, Warner, and spends them in a speakeasy mooning over singer Lynn. The songstress is the moll of gangster Thomson, who befriends the befuddled youth and then sets him

up to take the blame for a murder he himself committed. Discovering his son's shame, Warner turns the lad over to the police. The trial is held before judge Fawcett, who sternly lectures the delinquent lad, then gives him a suspended sentence. Paroled in Warner's custody, the sobered son decides

to sin no more. Every generation has its gap. Young Albertson, in an early starring role, turned into a fine character in the H.B. Warner mold. Lugosi, pre-cape and fangs, appears in a minor part. This is one of many flaming-youth films in which the protagonists have a lot of fun before the

late-dawning moral message is delivered.
