What appears to be the title of this print, “His Only Son,” may be a later alternate title or may be the first inter-title card.

Some of Lloyd F. Lonergan’s recurring storytelling themes are the basis for this simple, engaging and unlikely story—indomitable young romance, inheritance, classism, and wealth. Thanhouser makes especially rich use of one of its strengths, a variety of location exteriors. Even its interior sets, though still small, are more realistic than a few months earlier.
