Cast & Crew
Mrs. George Fawcett
Maurice Marny, a Paris junk dealer, jumps into the Seine to save little Jo-Jo, whose mother committed suicide, and takes the child to his grandfather, Émile Leval. Maurice falls in love with the boy's aunt, Louise, but Émile bitterly opposes the match. In the Flea Market, where he sings, Maurice attracts the attention of Monsieur Renard, a theater manager, and his wife, who offer him a part in their revue. Broken-hearted, Louise tries to persuade him to give up the stage, but to no avail. Émile, learning of their love, sets out for the theater with a pistol, but Louise has him arrested for attempted murder to protect Maurice and in desperation confesses her plot. Maurice returns to the theater and performs as a junkman rather than as the prince for which he is billed, and, triumphant, he renounces his career for the love of Louise.
