Cast & Crew
A stranger suddenly appears out of the night to take a room on the third floor back of a London rooming house. He soon becomes involved in the tangled lives of the boarders. On a river trip, the boarders come to understand each other and a bond develops. The next day, however, thanks to the conniving Wright, the middle-aged slum owner, the boarders are back to their bickering.

Jerome's play was filmed in 1918, directed by Herbert Brenon and starring Sir Johnston Forbes-Robertson, who originated the role of "The stranger" in the 1908 London production.
