The Heart of Ezra Greer
Cast & Crew
Ezra Greer, a kindly old butler, has scrimped and saved to send his daughter Mary to college. While at school, Mary meets and falls in love with wealthy student John Denbeigh, who proposes to her. Before marrying, however, John must win the consent of his guardian, who refuses, leading John to foresake Mary. Mary, now pregnant, is ashamed to return to her father, and so supports herself by sewing. Meanwhile, Ezra leaves his employer to look for his daughter and, in his wanderings, takes a job as John's butler, unaware that John is Mary's betrayer. After the baby is born, Mary reads that John is involved with vamp Amy Le Vere, and deposits the infant on his father's doorstep. Ezra cares for the child, and instills in John a sense of responsibility to find the infant's mother. Gradually, John reforms, foresakes the vamp and discovers that the foundling is none other than his own child. When John proposes to Mary, the family is happily reunited with the addition of Grandpa Ezra.
