Cast & Crew
Edward I. Luddy
Jake Schwartz, an apprentice for Fogarty, an Irish plumber, is forced to support his widowed mother on the miserly stipend of twelve dollars a week. He hopes eventually to be able to marry and support Sarah Levine, who supports her entire family by working in a garment factory. While on his way to work, Jake notices the careening automobile of Mrs. Sam Levis, wife of a retired manufacturer, who is subject to fainting spells; mistaking her falling arm as an invitation to ride, he hops in the front seat. Finding her unconscious, he takes the wheel and drives to his shop. Sarah, who has seen him from a streetcar, gives him the cold shoulder, plunging Jake into gloom, but Jake's mother and Mrs. Levis straighten out matters. All go as guests of Mr. Levis to the races. When Levis' jockey is discovered drugged, Jake agrees to ride in the race, which he wins by default. Three years later, Jake is found to be happily married to Sarah and the father of two children.
