Vintage original 11 x 14″ Hale Hamilton, George Fawcett, dir: Sam Wood. The unique art of the silent film lobby card is of supreme evidence here. This was a morals tale about the wealthy. A rich man, having built up his fortune, dies as his family — the new post-WWI Jazz Age generation — squanders the money and seems destined for a ruinous future.

Rufus Kayne (Hale Hamilton), with wild jazz baby granddaughter Sheila (Dorothy Mackaill).
