Plot Summary
In 1906, Richard Miller (Eric Linden) is selected as the valedictorian for his small-town high school. As such, the young idealist intends to use the opportunity to express anti-capitalist sentiments in his speech, though his father (Lionel Barrymore) interrupts before he can do so. Already facing disapproval at home, Richard finds himself on the outs with his girl (Cecilia Parker) when her father objects to their relationship. Richard decides to drown his sorrows, which makes matters worse.
