Cast & Crew
Buell Arnister, Jr., prefers poverty as an artist to the lawyer's career planned for him by his father. Dispossessed of his studio, he camps on the rooftop of a nearby mansion, where he meets Barbara Teller, who has been cheated out of her inheritance by her stepmother and is likewise forced to tent on the roof with her friend Justine Tate. During a storm, he invites the girls to take shelter in an unoccupied bedroom. Buell finds in the pocket of a dressing gown a note addressed to his father and signed by James Teller, stating that his last will gives Barbara her rights. During the absence of Mrs. Teller, Buell and Barbara fall in love, and Buell begins doing newspaper sketches--among them, one of the Count de Mourney, Mrs. Teller's new husband, whom he invites to dinner. Mrs. Teller has Buell and the girls arrested, but Buell produces the note, which leads to the discovery of a second will by which Barbara regains her property.
