Directed by William A. Seiter
1930    69m    Passed
Richard Carewe has raised his deceased friend's son from childhood with the help of his housekeeper and her beautiful daughter Phyllis.

The femme fatale dumps the boy when she discovers that he has no money, but by then Phyllis realizes that she is in love with Richard, not his foolish ward.
