Brief Synopsis

On one of his bratty son Eric's annual visits, the plutocrat US Bates takes Eric to his department store and offers him anything in it as a gift. Eric chooses a black janitor, Jack Brown, who has made him laugh with his antics. At first the man suffers many indignities as Eric's "toy," but gradually teaches the lonely boy what it is like to have and to be a friend.
